With LSU beating Ole Miss in their last game it opened up the doors for Alabama, as they control their destiny. If they win out they will be in the BCS playoffs, but that is a tall task. After a tough LSU game in their house the Tide still have to face the nation's top ranked team in Mississippi State as well as 3rd ranked Auburn in their season finale.

This game features 2 of the best defenses in the nation, as Alabama ranks 2nd in the nation on that side of the ball and LSU r4anks 4th.

Alabama ranks 2nd in the nation in run defense and they have not allowed a 100-yard rusher this season. LSU RB Leonard Fournette has nearly 300 rushing yards in his last 3 games and in the Ole Miss game he rushed for 113 and LSU rushed for 264 as a team.

LSU does not air it out often, but when they do they make it count with 2 WR's averaging over 23 yards per catch.

Alabama has a more balanced offense ranking 26th in passing yards per game and 30th in rushing yards per game. QB Blake Sims has 8 TD and 0 INT in his last 3 games and it helps that Alabama has one of if not THE best WR's in the nation in Amari Cooper. Keying on Cooper, who is coming off a 224 receiving yards performance against Tennessee, is obvious, as he has 71 catches for 1,132 yards while the next leading WR has 23 catches for 243 yards.

Bama RB T.J. Yledon, who has rushed for over 100 yards in 2 of his last 4 games, and Derrick Henry have combined for 1,148 rushing yards on the season.
