The No. 2 LSU Tigers (8-0, 4-0 SEC) take on No. 3 Alabama (8-0, 5-0 SEC) Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS. Per LSUSports.net:
For the first time since 1968, two teams ranked No. 1 in college football's two major polls – LSU in the AP, Alabama (8-0, 5-0 SEC) in the Coaches – will face off in the regular season. It's also the first regular season matchup of No. 1 vs. No. 2 since the Tigers defeated the Tide in Tuscaloosa in 2011, 9-6, in the Game of the Century. LSU landed at No. 2 in the first College Football Playoff rankings released this week, while Alabama came in at No. 3.
Both teams enter the contest with prolific offenses. LSU is fourth in scoring offense (46.8 points per game), while Alabama ranks second (48.6). The Tigers, led by quarterback Joe Burrow, rank second nationally in passing offense (377.6 yards per game), while Alabama ranks fifth (338.6). Burrow owns the third-best passer rating in the country (204.47) and ranks second with 30 touchdowns, while Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa ranks third in touchdown passes (27) and second in passer rating (212.40).
