ESPN senior writer Mark Schlabach recently made his preseason predictions for the SEC, which included his pick for the Conference game of the year: LSU beating Alabama in Tuscaloosa on Nov. 4.
quote:

LSU beats Alabama in Tuscaloosa: It's basically a toss-up on which team will win the SEC West, but I'm going with the Tigers because of quarterback Jayden Daniels and the Tigers' stout front seven on defense. Daniels has to be better throwing the ball down the field for LSU's offense to prosper. There are also some holes in the secondary at DB U. Alabama is going to be steaming mad after falling to the Tigers 32-31 in overtime in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last season. I just don't trust Alabama's quarterbacks and receiver corps, which was pretty underwhelming last season. The Tide's offensive line also has to play much better after surrendering 167 tackles for loss and 63 sacks the past two seasons combined.
Schlabach also made the following picks for the Tigers:

Defensive player of the year: Harold Perkins Jr., LB, LSU

Coach of the year: Brian Kelly, LSU

Nonconference game of the year: LSU vs. Florida State in Orlando, Florida, Sept. 3 (7:30 p.m. ET, ABC)

Conference game of the year: LSU at Alabama, Nov. 4

Hmm, I would drop this in the same category as a pre-season NCAA Basketball poll. WAY too many variables at the moment.

No, let's get excited and be entertained because that is what this is - entertainment. I can't play, all I can do is yell, and enjoy, so YEAH! We're gonna beat that GUMP arse in November - you pump the brakes, I'm all aboard.

Lotta rat poison for LSU heading into the season. We'll see how they handle the hype.

Yeah, I get the NC thing and I think most guys are handling it right, but I still don't like it mentioned.

Do it like we did it in 2019..."we ain't where we wanna be yet." And never let NC cross your lips...like a voodoo curse will ensue or something.

Why didn't he pick LSU-Florida winner, Why not LSU-Auburn?
Why is this game such a big deal? And dont say cause its the greatest rivalry in America, it only is in LA. It aint even the greatest in the SEC.

It's probably because it has a major impact on the CFP, as well as having the most future NFL talent on the field. Just like Ohio St vs Michigan, etc.

Because the winner of this game is usually the winner of the West and a playoff team
