Saban Bowl. The most anticipated SEC West game of the year is upon us when LSU travels to take on Alabama this Saturday on national television. An SEC title game appearance and perhaps a path to the BCS championship from there are likely on the line.
LSU has shown improvement the past few weeks, while Alabama has turned into a struggling team on offense. Alabama still has one of the top defensive units in the nation, but LSU counters with a stout defense of their own, one that has allowed 13, 13, 10 and 0 points in their last four games.
LSU's offense has shown life as well with Charles Scott getting going and Jordan Jefferson showing more poise in the pocket, but will it be enough to compete with Alabama in the unfriendly confinds of Brian Dennehy, I mean Bryant-Denny Stadium?
