Head coach Brian Kelly held his weekly press conference on Monday and opened up by talking about the matchup vs. No. 6 Alabama on Saturday night and the challenges the Tigers will face.

Kelly made it clear that the team will have to use the preparation that has gotten them to this point and will need to start off fast, playing consistent football for four quarters.

He also that it's a privilege to play in big games like this:

"All the basic tenants of a game like this is that's why you come to LSU. It's not pressure. It's a privilege to play in games like this. Certainly why I came to LSU, to want to play in games like this."

Full quote:

So what do we have to do? The first thing we need to do is just understand that you have to take this game and think about how you got here. We've done it by our preparation. We've prepared well. We have focused on playing our best when our best is needed. We can't be distracted by this is a big game or this is Alabama. That's not going to help us in this situation.

What's going to help us is playing our best when our best is needed. Our best players are going to have to play well. We're going to have to play consistently for four quarters. We must get off to a good start because we've shown that we're going to play well in the second half, but we have to play well for four quarters. We have to play consistently, one play at a time.

All the basic tenants of a game like this is that's why you come to LSU. It's not pressure. It's a privilege to play in games like this. Certainly why I came to LSU, to want to play in games like this.

But, you know, all of the noise, all of the other things are just distractions. This is about preparation. This is about focusing on our process this week and preparing to play our very best and adding another layer to what we're doing and being more intentional in our practice. And then when it's time to flip the switch to performance, play more consistently when it's time to play.
