Alabama vs. LSU Kickoff Time Set
Alabama's contest with LSU in Baton Rouge on November 5 will kickoff at 6 p.m. central time on ESPN. The Tide's tilt with the bayou bengals was chosen for the prime time slot over the highly anticipated matchup between the Georgia Bulldogs and Tennessee Volunteers, a game that will likely decide which team represents the East in the SEC Championship Game.
This will be Alabama's fifth night game this season, something Crimson Tide fans have begged for for years now. The previous four have been held in Tuscaloosa.
The Tide heads into the matchup appearing to be more vulnerable than it has been in a long time after the first loss to Tennessee in 16 years and two close calls with teams from Texas. However, Nick Saban has not lost a game to his former team in Baton Rouge since 2010.
New Tigers head coach Brian Kelly has the team improving every week, earning them a number 18 ranking after taking down number 7 Ole Miss 45-20. Saban is 2-0 against Kelly with both of those wins coming in the post season when Kelly was the coach of Notre Dame.
