The much-ballyhooed matchup between Alabama WR Julio Jones and LSU CB Patrick Peterson didn't disappoint. Jones was able to come away with six catches and a touchdown against Peterson but managed just 51 receiving yards. And six of those yards came on a short pass in which fellow Bama wideout Darius Hanks ran interference for Jones and Peterson had no chance to make a play.
