A pair of SEC West rivals meet up in Death Valley with everything on the line as LSU welcomes Alabama in college football’s Week 10 action on Saturday.
Alabama is already at one loss on the road to Tennessee and has no margin for error in the future, needing to win out and make the SEC Championship Game to earn any real chance at the College Football Playoff.
LSU comes in at two losses, but tied for the lead in the SEC West title chase and actually have a chance to get to Atlanta itself with a positive showing in this game, by far the most important of Brian Kelly’s young tenure.
