CBR Exclusive: Early Analysis: LSU at Alabama

#13 LSU (7-2, 3-2) at #1 Alabama (8-0, 5-0)

Saturday, 8 PM EST, CBS

Line: Alabama by 11

Over the last six years, the SEC West has sent either Alabama or LSU to the SEC Championship game five times. In those five games, Alabama or LSU has come out of the Championship Game as the winner four times. This has been the most important game in the SEC regular season for the last several years and it will be very crucial again this season.

Alabama comes into this game as the 800 pound gorilla. After going to College Station and exacting revenge on the Texas A&M Aggies, the Crimson Tide have breezed through their opponents. Since beating the Aggies, the Tide have outscored their opponents 246 to 26. 

LSU comes into this game looking to improve their play on the road. The Tigers are 7-2 on the season but they are just 1-2 in true road games with losses to Georgia and Ole Miss. The last time Les Miles and the Tigers ventured to Bryant-Denny Stadium they came away with the memorable 9-6 overtime win in 2011 and they will look to duplicate that this weekend.
