The LSU Tigers had two weeks to prepare for Alabama Crimson Tide’s receiving corps. As receiver DeVonta Smith just showed on a scorching 64-yard touchdown, stopping this group might be impossible.

Alabama’s drive started inside its 10-yard line and the offense covered the distance in seconds. After moving the ball to the 36-yard line, Smith broke open down the sideline and Tua Tagovailoa hit him in stride for the 64-yard score.

In a game where Tagovailoa is limited by his surgically-repaired ankle, Alabama’s receivers are finding ways to help him out with big plays. Jaylen Waddle dazzled the crowd with an insane 77-yard punt return touchdown and now Smith is making big plays of his own.

While college football fans might be used to low-scoring battles in this LSU-Alabama series, it’s clear this year will be remembered for explosive offenses and big plays.
