LSU and Alabama received the 7 p.m. time slot on CBS for its Nov. 8 showdown in Tiger Stadium, as announced by the SEC on Monday.
That primetime kickoff completes a full LSU home schedule of night games in Death Valley. It's the first time since 2009 that every LSU home game will be at night.
It will also be the fourth consecutive game between LSU and Alabama to be at night, dating back to the first "Game of the Century" in 2011.
This year's showdown will serve as the second part of a doubleheader on CBS, which once a season features a day/night double header on the network. Texas A&M at Auburn received the 2:30 time slot.
Both LSU and Alabama will enter the Nov. 8 contest after a week off. The Tigers will take a three-game winning streak into the game after knocking off previously undefeated Ole Miss on Saturday. Alabama's only loss this season came to the Rebels, and the Crimson Tide have won consecutive games against Texas A&M and Tennessee by a combined score of 93-20.
LSU has lost three straight to Alabama, starting with the 2012 BCS National Championship Game debacle in New Orleans. The last meeting between the two in Tiger Stadium was an instant classic, as AJ McCarron's touchdown pass to T.J. Yeldon with 51 seconds remaining lifted the Tide past LSU.
The Tigers will hope for a different result this time around, and a night game in Tiger Stadium seems the perfect stage for this rivalry.
