The LSU-Alabama contest marks the first time since 1959 that the Tigers have been involved in a top five matchup in the regular season. In 1959, top-ranked LSU, behind an 89-yard punt return from Billy Cannon, knocked off third-ranked Ole Miss, 7-3, in Tiger Stadium.
Saturday's contest will also mark the highest combined ranking between LSU and Alabama since 1972 when the second-ranked Crimson Tide beat the sixth-ranked Tigers, 35-21, in Birmingham.
The Tigers, winners of six straight, are ranked No. 5 in the nation and bring a 7-1 overall mark and a 4-1 league record into the game.
Alabama has won all nine of its games this year and stands at 9-0 overall and 6-0 in league action. LSU has won four of the last five against the Crimson Tide, including a 26-10 win a year ago in Baton Rouge.
