No. 14 LSU (6-2, 4-1 SEC) returns to play on Saturday against No. 8 Alabama (7-1, 5-0 SEC) in Tuscaloosa. Kickoff from Bryant-Denny Stadium is set for 6:45 pm CT on CBS.

Both teams are coming off bye weeks and need wins to take control of the SEC West race, with No. 10 Ole Miss also in the mix.

LSU won last year's matchup vs. Alabama in Tiger Stadium, 32-31 in overtime. Alabama holds the all-time record vs. LSU 27-55-5.

The Crimson Tide are currently a 3-point favorite on Saturday. The over/under is 61.5.

Preview per LSUSports.net:

The first Saturday in November has traditionally gone a long way in determining the winner of the SEC Western Division, and this contest will be no different. In fact, it will be the 18th time since 2002 (a span of 23 games) that both teams enter the game ranked in the Top 25.

“Certainly an exciting week,” said head coach Brian Kelly on Monday. “We get an opportunity to test ourselves against an outstanding football team in Alabama. It’s one of those games that puts you in position to challenge for an SEC championship.”

LSU quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Jayden Daniels will look to lead the Tigers’ high-powered offense into a hostile environment and continue their streak of dominant play, featuring a school-record seven consecutive games of 500 yards or more of total offense and a school-best four straight games of 48 points or more.
