(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) — The Crimson Tide will get another test on Saturday against tenth ranked LSU at home.
Alabama comes into the game at 8-0 and head coach Nick Saban isn’t worried about his team not being ready to go come Saturday night.
“This is not the kind of game that anybody could not get excited about playing in,” Saban said.
LSU is 7-2 and third in the SEC West and are 3-2 this season against their division.
“I can tell you that our guys are in college football for these kind of games,” LSU coach Les Miles said. “We look forward to playing in them. It’s a great opportunity for all. Any time you line up against Alabama, there’s a rivalry. There’s national prestige.”
“I think the greatest compliment that we can pay an opponent is our best efforts, and certainly Alabama will get that,” Miles continued.
Alabama has a chance to run the table with three regular season games left. They’ll face Chattanooga and Mississippi State before facing No. 7 Auburn.
