Patrick Peterson is going to be a busy man this weekend. On Sunday, Peterson will try to help the Cardinals end their six-game losing streak against the St. Louis Rams. Peterson will most likely draw a matchup against Rams number one receiver Brandon Lloyd.
However Peterson will have his his eye on another match up this weekend, as his alma-mater LSU takes on Alabama Saturday night in a match up of undefeated SEC rivals. "it's an LSU week," Peterson told reporters yesterday. "I'm all LSU all this week."
Peterson started for the Tigers from 2008-2010 and was a consensus first team All-American in 2010. He finished is career with 135 tackles, 22 pass breakups and seven interceptions and took home the Jim Thorpe (Top Defensive Back) and Chuck Bendarik (Top Defender) awards his junior season at LSU.
There has been a rivalry all week between Peterson and safety Rashad Johnson, who played three seasons with the Alabama Crimson Tide. Johnson got Peterson's attention earlier this week when he made the bold statement that Alabama women are better looking than Louisiana women.
"I don't know many women in Alabama, so I believe LSU and the state of Louisiana has the best looking women, and the best food as well," Peterson said. Peterson told reporters he may go over and watch the game at Johnson's house on Saturday night. Cardinals fans are hoping that tensions won't be as high at the Johnson house as they will be in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where the No. 1 vs No. 2 showdown takes place.
