Although the annual meeting between Alabama and LSU has lost a little bit of appeal, this is still one of 2012’s most-anticipated games. The Tigers’ loss to Florida in early October prevented these two teams from meeting as No. 1 versus No. 2 once again. However, there’s no question this game will have a significant impact on the national title race and should decide the champion of the SEC West.
College football’s Week 10 slate is highlighted by the Alabama-LSU clash in Baton Rouge and Oregon’s visit to USC. The Trojans have played their way out of the national title race with two losses in league play, but this is still a very talented team that is capable of winning the rest of its games.
The Tigers and Crimson Tide clash Saturday night for SEC supremacy.
LSU and Alabama will meet for the 77th time on Saturday night, when the Crimson Tide travels to Death Valley to battle the Tigers. Bama leads the all-time series 46-25-5, with the first game being played in 1895 and the last meeting in the BCS Championship Game at the conclusion of last season. Les Miles’ crew has the longest home-winning streak in the nation at 22, but Nick Saban’s bunch is ranked No.
Which team has the best shot at knocking off Alabama this year?
All signs point to Alabama cruising to another appearance in the national title game. The Crimson Tide have dominated all of their opponents so far this year but get their toughest test of 2012 against LSU this Saturday. While Alabama appears to be the clear No. 1 team, it's too early to guarantee another national title.
