Ronald Martinez/G​etty Images(NEW YORK) — In the BCS Title game, LSU fell to Alabama 21-0, which was there only loss of the season. LSU had just five first downs, two turnovers, and 92 total yards on offense. The reason for the offensive struggles? The play calling, according to LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson.

Jefferson went 11/17 for 53 yards and had an interception in the game. Jefferson thinks more could have been done to get the offense going.

“We have great [wide receivers] and sometimes we just wonder why we don’t use those guys. But we’re not the one calling plays,” Jefferson told WCNN. “We still have to go out and execute what the coaches and coordinators are calling. We can’t complain as players, but sometimes we do question that.”

During the regular season, LSU averaged 35.7 points per game, which was 17th best in the nation.
