The Stakes are always high when the crimson tide square of against the tigers. And this game will be no different as a BCS appearance is on the line. Alabama who is ranked #1 in the BCS rankings is looking to defend their national championship title against the #5 LSU Tigers.
This will be no easy feat as Alabama has to head to Death Valley. LSU is 22-1 under Les Myles tenure as a head coach when they play at home. Nothing but revenge is on LSU mind as they got embarrassed in last years championship game, They where held to under 150 yards of total offense and didn’t even cross midfield until the 4th quarter . Alabama defense still proves to be dominate after most of their players went on to the NFL,Alabama only gives up 8.1 points a game #1 ranked defense in college football .LSU will have to find creative ways and try to slow down Alabama’s dominate defense, LSU has struggled to score in most of their games.
LSU will have to rely on mostly on their run game with the dynamic duo of Kenny Hillard & Micheal Ford, Zach Mettenberger still has yet to find his touch as his first season as LSU quarterback. Mettenberger through for 7 touchdown‘s and 4 picks this season Mettenberger has yet to prove he can be the savior of a stagnant passing game that LSU has, Alot weighs on his shoulders Saturday night
PREDICTIONS: Alabama 24, LSU 10
