BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- LSU twice rallied from second-half deficits and once again coach Les Miles employed a little trickery on fourth down, allowing the No. 12 Tigers to beat fifth-ranked Alabama 24-21 on Saturday.
Rueben Randle had 125 yards receiving to lead LSU (8-1, 5-1 SEC), including a 75-yard score on a pass from Jordan Jefferson.
The Tigers trailed 14-13 when Miles called an audacious reverse on fourth-and-1 in the fourth quarter. The 23-yard gain set up Stevan Ridley's go-ahead 1-yard plunge.
Greg McElroy completed 21 of 34 passes for 223 yards and touchdown passes to Trent Richardson and Julio Jones. But he was intercepted and fumbled on a sack in his own territory, which allowed the Tigers to take a 10-point lead inside the last 6 minutes.
Alabama (7-2, 4-2) could not recover.
