One of the great rivalries in college football will be renewed this Saturday when #2 Alabama welcomes #1 LSU. The teams have played 83 times, dating back to 1895, with Alabama having dominated the series, winning 53 of the 83 meetings (with 25 LSU wins and five ties). Alabama has won the last eight in a row. However, four of the last ten meetings have gone to overtime. The fact that Alabama coach Nick Saban actually led LSU to a national championship before departing for a brief (and disastrous) stint in the NFL and then taking the job at Alabama. Since then, Alabama has gone 10-3 in the series. The last time LSU was ranked #1 and visited a second-ranked Alabama team, though, the Tigers won, 9-6, in overtime, in a throwback game to the days when the forward pass was seen as a sort of risky venture. In 2019, though, with Tua Tagovailoa and Joe Burrow quarterbacking the two offenses, expect a great deal of firepower. Will the Tigers end the Alabama winning streak? Or will the Crimson Tide simply put LSU in their place once again? Check out our sports betting preview of this classic SEC matchup.
