Texas A&M @ LSU
Alabama Crimson Tide @ Mississippi State
Our Selection : Alabama leads the nation in scoring defense allowing only 9.8 points per game, but have faced only one quality offensive team. That would be the Aggies who blew up the Crimson Tide for 628 yards while scoring 42 points. We would be foolish to say that LSU’s offense is as explosive as Texas A&M’s 1st ranked total, but they’re not far behind with the 4th highest total offense yards per game in college football. So we expect that LSU will be able to put up some decent numbers on Saturday.
Alabama has scored 41.3 points per game this season and while some of the credit has to go to defense giving the offense short fields this is still a strong unit. LSU’s defense has struggled from Day 1 and has been lit up by TCU, Georgia and Mississippi.
