Saturday 8 PM: #1 Alabama vs. #13 LSU
In the sober light of day, it is now clear that LSU fired the borderline legendary (if admittedly batshit) coaching institution known as Les Miles in the middle of the season for losing to two Top 10 teams by a total of seven points. Huh. We'll see how that works out. In any event, the muscularly talented Tigers have embarked on a bit of hot streak under interim coach Ed Orgeron, ticking off convincing wins over Missouri, Southern Mississippi, and Ole Miss, and will now attempt to scale Mount Saban in Baton Rouge. Does this Alabama team have any weaknesses? The Tide have rolled with impunity over the cream of the SEC, including #4 Texas A&M two weeks ago. Weird things happen in Death Valley, but it's difficult to imagine a circumstance strange enough to derail the Tuscaloosa express.
