On Saturday afternoon, No. 6 Alabama and No. 10 LSU (both 7-1, 4-1) battle on the gridiron for the 74th time. Personally, I'm upset because it was originally scheduled as a night game at Death Valley. Thank the suits at CBS for moving it to 3:30 p.m./ET.
Anyway, the rivalry originated 1895, and Alabama leads the all-time series 45-23-5. The teams have met annually in early November since 1964.
One the unique things about this series is how much success the road team has had. From 1971 to 1999, the Crimson Tide went 14-0-1 in Baton Rouge. Conversely, LSU was 10-3 in the state of Alabama from 1982 to 2007.
In 2007, the meeting garnered more attention when Alabama hired head coach Nick Saban—who previously coached LSU from 2000-04.
With that as a backdrop, here are the top 10 games in the Alabama-LSU series.
