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.
