Alabama football offensive lineman Landon Dickerson is quite the personality, and he showed it Saturday against LSU. 

Dickerson had a dance to point out that LSU defensive lineman Jaquelin Roy committed encroachment. 

CBS broadcaster Gary Danielson called Dickerson "a physical character." CBS play-by-play broadcaster Brad Nessler said Dickerson is "feisty."

And in the fourth quarter, Dickerson flopped backward when LSU defensive end Neil Farrell Jr. approached him and their facemasks tapped.

Dickerson received abundant adoration on social media.
