The one you circle on your calendar every offseason is here.
LSU vs. Alabama, arguably college football’s best and most heated rivalry over the past 5-10 years, goes down Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. and CBS will have the television broadcast.
The Crimson Tide enter the annual grudge at 7-1 overall, 4-1 in conference play. Nick Saban’s troops are ranked fourth in the Associated Press poll and fifth in the College Football Playoff Rankings, on the cusp of the all-important top four.
Les Miles’ Tigers have resurrected their season in the last month, now 7-2 overall, 3-2 in league play, following consecutive wins over Florida, Kentucky and Ole Miss. LSU comes in at No. 14 in the AP poll and falls two spots behind, at No. 16, in the CFP Rankings.
TSD has you covered with all the pregame material you could wish for – audio, video and written stories from LSU players, Miles and assistant coach Jeff Grimes as well as detailed scouting reports and a look from behind enemy lines courtesy BamaMag.com publisher Kirk McNair.
Also included are double-digit recruiting articles on what’s shaping up to be the biggest visitor weekend in ages for both the football and men’s basketball programs.
