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, ESPN college football analyst and SEC pundit Paul Finebaum broke down the action. Finebaum said he’s most looking forward to watching Crimson Tide wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.
Despite LSU’s high-flying offense, Finebaum thinks the Tigers will have to wait another year to take down the Crimson Tide.
He likes Alabama to come out on top.
“It has been 2,926 days since LSU has beaten Alabama and they’re going to have at least 365 more,” Finebaum said. “Geaux Bama, the Tide closer to the CFP and they do it again today.”
He’s not the only one. Former Alabama star running back Mark Ingram had a bold prediction for the game.
“My prediction is a Bama beat down,” he said. “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.
LSU and Alabama kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
