Alabama to Host LSU For Yet Another Night Home Game
The Alabama Crimson Tide will host the LSU Tigers Saturday night at 6 p.m. CST inside Bryant-Denny Stadium on ESPN, the SEC announced Sunday.
This game will be the third evening game at Bryant-Denny Stadium and the fourth straight night game for the Crimson Tide.
Alabama leads the series 54-26-5, including a 24-17-2 mark at home. Last year in Baton Rouge, Alabama dominated the Tigers in a 55-17 victory en route to an undefeated, national championship season. Two years ago, the Tigers were victorious in Tuscaloosa, winning 46-41 en route to an undefeated, national championship season.
While neither team can finish the season undefeated, the Tide is still in a position to vie for a College Football Playoff opportunity and a win on Saturday against LSU will go a long way in ensuring Alabama makes it to Atlanta first for the SEC Championship game against the Georgia Bulldogs.
LSU is hampered with numerous injuries but will be led by quarterback Max Johnson. His 2,008 yards and 20 touchdowns have helped the Tigers stay competitive in the tough SEC West. Defensively, all eyes are on Derek Stingley, a potential top-5 pick at the cornerback position in next year's NFL Draft.
Fans can listen to Eli Gold and John Parker Wilson's call of the game live via the Crimson Tide Sports Network on the Tide 100.9 App.
