- 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 55-27-5 record. It’s a matchup that goes back to 1895, and outside of a few runs of LSU wins, this has been all Alabama.
Alabama vs. LSU All-Time Records
|All-Time Win Pct.||.749||.654|
In an overtime thriller, the LSU Tigers knocked off the Alabama Crimson Tide 32-31. The win put the Tigers in control of their own destiny in the SEC West and gave them some life in the race for a spot in the College Football Playoff at No. 6 and a West title.
For the Crimson Tide, the loss was their second of the season, causing them to fall to No. 8 in the College Football Playoff poll. While that may not be a cause for concern with other programs, Alabama does not control its own destiny for the first time in a long time.
LSU’s College Football Playoff hopes died in College Station with a loss to the Texas A&M Aggies. The Tigers fell to 14th in the latest CFP rankings. Although they play in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday, they are significant underdogs against the top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs.
Alabama “stumbled” to a 10-win season after winning the Iron Bowl. The Tide’s regular season is done. They sit sixth in the CFP rankings and would need absolute chaos to get in as a two-loss non-champion. They likely get a bid to another New Year’s Six Bowl.
