Brian Griese predicts that Alabama will beat LSU.
John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN College Football Analyst Brian Griese shared his prediction for the LSU-Alabama game on the ESPN's SVP & Russilo today. Without predicting a winner, Griese pretty much said that Alabama will win on Saturday. Here is what he had to say:
quote:

"When I look at quarterback play, the most important thing is third-down. And there has not been a better quarterback in all of college football from an efficiency stand-point on third down then Blake Simms. And thats the game from a quarterback perspective, especially when you have a running tandem like Alabama has..."
Ryen Russilo then asked Griese if he worries about Blake Simms in this "spot" on the road Saturday night at LSU, and he quickly responded "Not at all."
quote:

"I don't think you are going to need 30 points to win this game. So if you score 24 points and you're Alabama, you are feeling really good about your chances. As long as Blake Simms does not make that big mistake and he's efficient and manages that offense and uses the weapons that he has, I think he will be fine in that situation."
Griese also picked:
(7) Kansas State over (6) TCU
(4) Oregon over (17) Utah
(8) Michigan State over (14) Ohio State
(10) Notre Dame over (9) Arizona State

"Has he picked LSU at all this year?"

I can't remember the last time he picked LSU ever. But that doesn't matter. The guy is a talking head with moderate analytical ability.

If our running backs don't fumble, we're a threat to score over 30 points in every game.

The doubters look dumber and dumber every week. Herbstriet picking Kentucky takes the cake so far

He also picked LSU to finish last in the West, so he's just running with his own narrative. Nothing to see, here.

If by "you" you mean LSU, LSU beat Bama 24 to 21 in 2010. And in 2007 LSU beat Bama 41 to 34. Otherwise, yeah, teams don't score much on Bama. The winning team usually has around 20-25 points, regardless of who wins the game.

I haven't researched this, but I'm thinking Dak is probably much better on 3rd down

Some gonna have a very rough night if LSU can shut A Copper down in this game. I'm willing to bet if he is shut out bama scores no more than 10 with him 17 so LSU wins 21-10 Go Togers!
