Football: Alabama’s Julio Jones v. LSU’s Peterson

The AP calls it Round 3 in the battle between Alabama Crimson Tide star receiver Julio Jones and LSU’s star corner Patrick Peterson.

It is a titanic match, and it could determine the outcome of this week’s game. Both are likely to earn a spot in the first round of the NFL draft.

The players both praise each other. According to the AP, “Jones calls Peterson “by far” the best cornerback he has faced. Peterson says Jones looked like NFL star Andre Johnson in his last game.” (Below is much more on these star players.)
