BATON ROUGE, La. -- What we liked, and didn't like, in LSU's 21-17 loss to Alabama Saturday.

THREE UP

1. The passing game: Not just quarterback Zach Mettenberger, but also his receivers. The Tigers quarterback completed 24 of 35 passes for 298 yards and a touchdown. After a shaky start, the junior played his best game, by far, and the receivers made tough catches. Jarvis Landry (8 receptions, 76 yards, one touchdown) was outstanding.
Competition is great
Miles sees the LSU offensive managing the game well and improving on defense.
