The LSU vs. Alabama 2011 NCAA college football game arrives on Saturday, making for an intense showdown. After kickoff time arrives, those watching the game live on television will be in for a treat of #1 vs. #2 for college football. The game takes place in Bryant-Denny Stadium with plenty of interest among fans in attendance live on-site or watching it live on television.
Coach Nick Saban (pictured) will try to have his Alabama team pumped up and ready to knock off the #1 team in all the land. Official kickoff time for LSU vs. Alabama will be sometime after 8 p.m. EST on Saturday evening. CBS will provide television coverage on its local affiliate stations around the country, although it’s hard not to see mention of the big game on other channels these days. ESPN has been having a field day with this one, and will likely continue to do so throughout the day on Saturday. Unfortunately there will be no live streaming video feed coverage of the game.
However, most people get CBS across the nation and will get to see the #1 LSU Tigers try to defeat the #2 Crimson Tide in Alabama. They are both ranked at the top of the FBS rankings for defense with Alabama first and LSU second. They’re also among the top 15 for scoring, with Bama at 12th and LSU at 13th. With both teams enjoying perfect records in the SEC and overall, that makes for a potential classic.
A recent article on CBS Sports website from Jerry Palm, a BCS/Bracketology expert, examines the likelihood that this is a prequel to the January 9th National Championship game. Palm says “I don’t think that’s a very likely event.” He notes that Oklahoma State and Stanford will need to lose to even have that discussion. He also mentions Boise State as a potential team for the championship, although that could be debated.
Both of the teams have talented players and personnel. Unfortunately only one squad can win, but it could come down to the wire. Who is your prediction to win the LSU vs. Alabama 2011 game on Saturday night?
