LSU hasn't beaten Alabama since 2011 in the infamous 9-6 defensive slugfest. The Crimson Tide have rattled off eight straight wins since.

For the top-ranked Tigers, this year's edition of the highly anticipated contest is a chance to end that streak. And LSU already received some bragging rights heading into the game.

The Tigers jumped Alabama in the AP Top 25 this past week. LSU now sits atop the rankings while the Crimson Tide fell to No. 2.

Tension between both teams is building at a rapid rate. LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson spoke to the media about the upcoming SEC battle.

He thinks it's time for the Tigers to finally beat Alabama and end the losing streak. The last time LSU beat Alabama, Justin's older brother, Jordan, was apart of the team to take down the Tide in 2011.

“The last time we beat them was Jordan,” Jefferson said, via The Advocate. “That was at Alabama. It’s time for Part II.”

The older Jefferson brother played quarterback for the Tigers from 2007 to 2011. He played a huge role in helping LSU take down Alabama in 2011.

Now, the younger Jefferson brother thinks the Tigers are going to beat Saban and the Tide once again.

LSU and Alabama play on Nov. 9 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
