Jordan Jefferson remembers nearly every second of the last time he played in the Superdome.
He was the starting quarterback for Destrehan High School, and like so many kids growing up in Louisiana, was awed to be playing in New Orleans' football palace. By the end of the night, he'd led his school to its first state championship in 34 years.
''I've been in the Superdome quite often,'' said Jefferson, who will try to wrap up his college career with another title Monday night, when he leads top-ranked LSU against No. 2 Alabama in the BCS title game. ''I mean, it's something that I would call a sanctuary for me.''
There's a bunch of Tigers who would say that.
The landmark structure just an hour's drive down Interstate 10 from the LSU campus in Baton Rouge is tantamount to a home-field advantage, even though it's supposed to be a neutral venue.
LSU players are hoping that 90 percent of the seats are filled with purple and ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jordan Jefferson's season started with trouble off the field and ended with trouble on it.
''It feels like a nightmare, but it's a learning experience,'' Jefferson said after LSU's 21-0 loss in Monday night's BCS title game. ''I'm facing reality. LSU finished second today. We all have to take the situation and learn from it, but still...
One more victory in the final game of his career could have made Jordan Jefferson the toast of Baton Rouge.
Instead, he heard boos in a bitter ending to what he'd hoped would be a story of personal vindication after an early season defined by trouble with the law and a four-game suspension.
His most memorable play was an unfathomable interception in a 21-0 loss to Alabama ...
Jordan Jefferson was awful in Monday’s BCS National Championship. The LSU quarterback threw for only 53 yards on 11-of-17 passing with one interception. This wonderful GIF pretty much tells you the whole story, as Alabama shutout the Tigers, 21-0. Despite Jefferson’s struggles against an overwhelmingly impressive Bama defense, LSU coach Les Miles kept back-up Jarrett Lee, who...
When LSU was relying on both Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson in the middle of the season, the Tigers had an edge over a lot of teams because they were operating with a rare two-quarterback system that worked well because of the different elements the two brought to the table. Now that situation has changed and Jeffersons struggles against Georgia in the SEC...
LSU players are already starting to ponder their place in college football history. Quarterback Jordan Jefferson says if the top-ranked Tigers can beat No. 2 Alabama on Monday night "I think we will go down as the greatest team." Guard Will Blackwell and tailback Michael Ford were a little less bold, but think LSU would have a case.
In any given football game, especially a game that isn't going the way the fans would like, the most popular guy in the stadium is the backup quarterback.
Such was the case during tonight's BCS Championship Game, as LSU's Jordan Jefferson stumbled through series after excruciating series while backup Jarrett Lee sat on the bench watching the Tigers offense overrun by...
Tonight's the night folks as number one LSU takes on number two Alabama for the BCS Championship. There will be plenty of debate with respect to the polls should Bama wins and everything will be right if the Bayou Bengals put the Tide down in New Orleans. A lot of people have their BCS game predictions, their players to watch and all the storylines covered entering the game....
If you had Alabama winning the BCS National Championship game Monday night, I’m pretty sure you did not have them winning so decisively. Nor did you really think the Tide’s outstanding running back Trent Richardson would gain more yards (96) than the entire LSU offense (92).
Finally...after nearly two complete games against each other, Alabama's Trent Richardson scored...
