On Saturday afternoon, the top two ranked teams in the nation square off when the No. 1 ranked LSU Tigers visit Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for an SEC showdown against the No. 2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. LSU had a bye in Week 10 after defeating the Auburn Tigers 23-20 at home in Week 9 to improve to 8-0. Joe Burrow threw for 321 yards and one touchdown and rushed for another in the LSU win at Death Valley.
Alabama also had a bye during Week 10 and defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks 48-7 during Week 9. With the win, Alabama improved to 8-0.

Alabama has dominated this matchup winning 4 of the last 5 straight up against LSU. At home, the Crimson Tide has won each of its last 10 SU. However, the key factor at this point is the playing status of Tua Tagovailoa. If the Tide quarterback can play and is mobile on his ankle, Alabama will win, but if backup Mac Jones plays, LSU will pressure the quarterback and force turnovers and beat the Tide. Final Score Prediction, LSU Tigers win and cover ATS 31-28.
