The hype surrounding the upcoming showdown between Alabama and LSU continues to build with each passing day. 

The game already held major implications in the SEC West race, but things ramped up greatly when the College Football Playoff selection committee released its rankings on Tuesday night. Not only will the winner of Saturday night's game be in a great position to make the conference championship game, but that team will also strengthen its position within the coveted top four.

Now throw in the matchup of the two best running backs in the conference - and possibly the nation - and there's plenty to be excited for this weekend.

In case you need a little extra motivation, we pulled these hype videos for you. With the magnitude of this game, we decided one wasn't enough.
