In what has turned into college football's premier rivalry over the past five years, LSU and Alabama get ready for another top-five matchup sure to affect the National Championship landscape.
Alabama has been far and away the most dominant team in the nation in 2012; however, they face the difficult task of going into Death Valley where LSU coach Les Miles says "dreams come to die." The Tigers are notoriously tough at night games in Tiger Stadium, posting a 201–59–3 record since 1960.
In 2009, ESPN writer Chris Low listed Tiger Stadium's Saturday night atmosphere as unsurpassed in the country, ranking it No. 1. ESPN Magazine's Wright Thompson described Tiger Stadium as "the best place in the world to watch a sporting event."
This game will surely showcase a bevy of future first-round talents, highlighting the best players, teams and coaches in college football.
