In just a few hours the biggest game of the college football season kicks off from Tuscaloosa.
No. 3 Alabama hosts No. 2 LSU in a battle between College Football Playoff contenders. The winner will take a stranglehold on the SEC West and likely be the division’s representative in the SEC title game.
Before the game kicks off, a former Alabama star had some choice words for the Tigers. Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram doesn’t think the LSU-Alabama game will be close.
He failed to give a score prediction, but said Alabama will win in a “beat down.”
“My prediction is a Bama beat down. We been doing this. Every year you want to hype up this LSU-Bama game. We own them. they are our step-son, our step-child, our red-headed step-child at that … Roll Tide all day, we [are going to] whoop that,” Ingram said about the game.
"We own them. … We finna whoop that."

LSU’s last win in the rivalry came back in 2011 when the Tigers won a defensive slug-fest, 9-6.
However, this rendition of the Tigers features one of the highest-scoring offenses in the country led by a Heisman Trophy contender in quarterback Joe Burrow.
Can the Tigers finally end their losing streak to the Crimson Tide?
