Games like this often turn on a key turnover or a quirky tipped ball or a special teams play. Certainly there is no indication that either team will be able to run up and down the field.
I give LSU the advantage, if only b/c of a better secondary and the resurgence of the QB position this year (compared to last year). And by “resurgence” I mean “won’t actively lose the game for you.” Plus, the Mad Hatter.
I’m really, *really *looking forward to this game.
I’ve seen every LSU game and about half of 'Bama’s. Honestly, if LSU brings its “A” game, I don’t see them losing. No matter what 'Bama does. LSU’s offense is much, much better than last year’s and on defense I swear their third team could start for most D-I programs. If the game is close, I think they’ll be able to outlast 'Bama pounding the ball on offense and still have fresh legs on defense through the 4th quarter.
However, if Lee reverts to Pick-Six and Jefferson to scramble-fumble, 'Bama will be right there to take advantage. And if 'Bama manages to get out to an early 2 touchdown lead (whether by good execution or quirky plays), I’m not sure LSU is built for playing catch-up against an extremely talented team.
