LSU-Alabama Prediction

Alabama has probably the toughest SEC conference schedule this season. They get all the heavyweights and missing are games with Kentucky and middle of the road teams like Tennessee (well, maybe upper cusp now) and Mizzou. After being swept by Vandy last weekend the Tide host LSU. Call us crazy, but Alabama could steal this series but the safe best is LSU. LSU 2 wins, Alabama 1 win.
