LSU's got nothing to lose and everything to gain against Alabama

LSU's got nothing to lose and everything to gain against Alabamaā€¯

He's more concerned with the team's schedule going forward, "I'm focusing on the next 4 games".

In the losing string, there was always the thought that LSU had enough offensive playmakers and stout offensive and defensive lines to slug it out with Alabama, which enters Saturday's game No. 1 in the polls for the fourth time since it beat the Tigers 21-0 for the 2011 BCS national championship. LSU coach Ed Orgeron knows the streak is there, but the Tigers aren't thinking about it.

"This game has turned into a huge rivalry through the years since I've been here especially, probably even before that".

And the Vegas money boys don't put much stock in a 17-16 LSU win at Florida, which is so bad it just fired head coach Jim McElwain Sunday after No. 2 Georgia pounded the Gators, 42-7. A recent interview of LSU players revealed that the Bengal Tigers don't fear the Tide (at least publicly).

The fact that a win over Alabama could set the table for LSU to win the Western Division isn't being considered by anybody. "I need you to come with me because you're big player on your end in Louisiana, in the Monroe area, and I'm a big on my end and we can get a lot of people to come'". LSU has won three straight games dating back to the loss to Troy at home.

Maybe Alabama is sending a message to LSU or maybe it's just in the spirit of Halloween.

Shortly after linebackers Rashaan Evans and Shaun Dion Hamilton were two of 15 semifinalists named for the Dick Butkus Award, Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick were selected as semifinalists for Maxwell Football Club honors on Monday. Orgeron doesn't want those types of mistakes to happen again. "We talked on the phone, and he said I'm going to be a Tiger".

The Chuck Bednarik Award, despite it also coming via Maxwell Football Club, is presented annually to the nation's best defensive player.

"It's the same for us". "They've really made a turnaround as a team".

The Crimson Tide used its bye week to focus on fundamentals in preparation for the final stretch of the season. "That's the way this game goes".

The Crimson Tide really have not been tested all season long. The Tigers are averaging almost 220 yards per game on the ground. He has rushed the football 124 times for more than 700 yards and 6 touchdowns this season. Danny Etling leads the Tigers as the starting quarterback with 1,452 passing yards and 9 touchdowns.

Alabama had two Butkus Award winners last season. He has been plagued by a leg injury for most of the season, but he looked fine as he rushed for 276 yards against Ole Miss on October 21.

- Saban said he is not concerned about the CFP rankings at this point. "Since 2007, I think, both teams have been ranked in the Top 20 in each one of these games that we've played. It really stuck with me".
