Week 10 – Nov. 7: Away @ Alabama, Bryant-Denny Stadium Tuscaloosa, Alabama

The second big SEC West battle for the Tigers comes in week 10 against the Crimson Tide. Last season, Alabama won in overtime 20-13.

Honestly, this game could go either way. If Alabama continues to rise to the top of NCAA Division I football, I think they win this game because Saban will find a way to barely out coach Les Miles.

Things will be different if Alabama’s offense relies only on the running game all season and the Tigers have a week to prepare for Derrick Henry and the subpar quarterbacks the Tide throw on the field.  This game could flip the overall outcome of the SEC and the College Football Playoff. It could make things VERY interesting for LSU faithful and the selection committee, who love the Tide.

But for now, I think Alabama wins this one again in 2015. Another close game, something the Tigers aren’t going to be used to. The Crimson Tide win because of a costly turnover by the LSU offense late in the fourth quarter. Knock on wood.

Record after week 10: 7-2
