Over the weekend, the LSU Tigers won the biggest game of the college football season when they took down the Alabama Crimson Tide. LSU’s offense looked unstoppable en route to a 46-41 win.
College football fans weren’t the only ones watching Saturday’s game. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick loved what he saw from the Tigers and the Tide this weekend.
When asked how many professional players were in the game, Belichick responded “at least 40.”
He went on to say he’ll be watching that game for years.
“That was some game…I’ll be watching that game a lot, the next three years. I’ll go back and watch it next year for the kids that were underclassmen. They had a few freshman from both sides, so if they’re playing as freshman they have to be pretty good too,” Belichick said.
"I'll be watching that game a lot for the next three years."

Belichick won’t have the luxury of selecting near the top of the first round of the 2020 NFL draft, so he’ll miss out on top picks like Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa and Alabama’s trio of top wide receivers.
He has a history of drafting SEC players, like in 2018 when he selected two Georgia players in the first round.
Will he select a Tigers or Crimson Tide player in 2020?
