Game Preview: Both teams have similar philosophies and styles. They each rely on a great running game and stout defenses to win games.
LSU’s Leonard Fournette and Alabama’s Derrick Henry are two of the best running backs in the country. With both the running backs and defenses expected to play well, the key to the game will be the play at the quarterback position. LSU’s Brandon Harris has had a good start to the season and has yet to throw an interception. Alabama has played both Cooper Bateman and Jacob Coker at times this season. Coker has cemented the starting job and will be tested against one of the best defenses in the SEC. Tonight will be another installment in this great SEC rivalry.
