- Alabama and LSU are SEC rivals.
- Below is a look at their all-time series history.
The Alabama-LSU game is one of the most anticipated games of the SEC season for various reasons, including both teams usually having good college football championship odds. Both programs have been in the running for national titles recently, and the SEC West usually goes to the winner of this matchup.
Also, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban has led both programs to national titles. After winning the BCS National Championship with the Tigers, he bolted for the Miami Dolphins in the NFL before returning to the SEC as the Tide’s new head coach.
Alabama vs. LSU Series History
Alabama has dominated this series historically with a 55-26-5 record. It’s a matchup that goes back to 1895, and outside of a few runs of LSU wins, this has been all Alabama.
From 2000-11 nine of LSU’s 26 all-time wins occurred. Alabama then dominated the sport, which included LSU. The only loss by Alabama to LSU since that 9-6 Tiger win in 2011 was in 2019 when the Tigers won the national championship.
LSU’s 823 wins are 12th all-time, while Alabama sits second in that category. In the other three categories, LSU is in the top 32 but is not in the same conversation historically as Alabama, which ranks in the top seven for each.
