Previous Meeting LSU 9 Bama 6, OT

Posted Image
#1 LSU (13-0)
Key Players

QB Jordan Jefferson
RB Kenny Hilliard
WR Reuben Randle
CB Morris Claiborne
CB Tyrann Mathieu
Coach: Les Miles

Posted Image
#2 Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1)
Key Players

QB AJ McCarron
RB Trent Richardson
WR Marquis Maze
LB Courtney Upshaw
SS Mark Barron
Coach: Nick Saban


Pass Game: EVEN
Personally feel the most polished QB in this game is the player that will be playing the least, Lee. Jefferson came in during the Bama game and turned the tide of the game. He was the X-Factor that helped LSU win the game. AJ McCarron won't be asked to do much but he is underrated when it comes to passing. LSU's receivers are a tad better but McCarron has some targets to throw to, even Richardson out of the backfield.

Run Game: BAMA
LSU has plenty of RBs to throw at you, Hilliard, Ford, Ware and Blue but Bama has the best. Richardson was a beat in the previous meeting, this time just needs to get into the end zone. Slight edge to Bama but LSU will have the advantage in depth. Don't count out Lacy either.

Defense: EVEN
Two different types of defenses. LSU is more opportunistic, faster, and more athletic. Bama is hard nosed and more power oriented. LSU specializes in the secondary while Bama's strength is up front.

Special Teams: LSU
Many would argue that Bama's special teams lost the game for them last time. I would agree to a certain extent but those FGs weren't gimmes. Some I wondered if Saban should have punted and played for field position. LSU's real advantage comes in punter Brand Wing, where returns are a rarity. Also, you have to like LSU's return game better in Mathieu. Maze is no slouch either though.

Coaching: LSU
Not saying Miles is a better coach. Just think his quirkiness and ability to coach in big games will be an edge for LSU. Saban is still a great coach but with Miles, you always have to be on your toes.

*For the non-CFB fans there is at least plenty of NFL prospects to watch. Many of whom will be on the Panther's radar.

Top NFL Prospects:

Alabama: Trent Richardson - RB, Dre Kirkpatrick - CB, Courtney Upshaw - LB, Dont'a Hightower - LB, S - Mark Barron

LSU: Morris Claiborne - CB

This could make it Panther related.

I'd almost guarantee one of the players on the field tonight are a Carolina Panther in four months.

A defensive needy team watching two great defensive college teams.

Hard for me to pick who I want to win. Since I live in both of these team's territories, I have no desire to hear from their obnoxious fanbases.

It's like someone sneaks into your home and shits in your cereal every morning and then forces you to come to the huddle and open/comment in threads you apparently hate.

I'm not even watching. I'm tired of the over saturation of the SEC. The SEC was not that good this year and I just have to listen to another year of how the SEC has won titles in blah blah blah years.

It is easy to win a lot of NCs when you are guaranteed at least one team in every year no matter how many games they lose, or whether they even play in a conference championship game or not, and then they usually get to play against a pooty Big 10 team that was just good enough to beat a bunch of sh*tty teams in that weak ass conference.
