Bama's biggest challenge for this game is to take LSU seriously. The Tigers are much better than any other opponent the Crimson Tide has faced this season. Yes, LSU lost to one team from the state of Alabama (Troy) that raised a few eyebrows in the college football world. But since then the Tigers have beaten another team from Alabama that the Tide is very familiar with, a very good Auburn team. LSU may not be as good of a team as Georgia but the Tigers are probably more talented than any other team in the SEC except for Alabama.
Saturday's game kicks off at 7 pm CT and can be seen on CBS.
