SEC Football: Does Winner of Alabama-LSU Game Also Win the National Title?
It may seem like a foregone conclusion because the SEC is so extremely loaded, like it is every year.
But with that in mind, it’s also easy to anticipate that both Alabama and LSU will be undefeated when they meet in early November.
That game, could very well be the SEC championship game, as both are far better than anyone in the SEC East, but we have seen upsets before.
In any event however, the Oklahoma Sooners are the current No. 1 school in the country, and appears that they will be the other team in the national championship game.
So regardless of who wins, can Alabama or LSU dethrone the Sooners for the No. 1 spot?
Well, Oklahoma arguably has the best offense in the country, but ‘Bama and the Bayou Bengals also have some sick defenses.
In addition, both schools have a better offense than the Sooners’ defense, which has been lackluster when facing not only SEC schools, but really any school with a solid offense.
But just because Oklahoma is vulnerable on defense, doesn’t guarantee The Tide or the Tigers can pull off the W.
Keeping Bob Stoops’ offense off the field is crucial, and with two inexperienced QBs on both ‘Bama and LSU, managing the game is the key.
It’s what LSU did against Ohio State in ’07, Florida against the Sooners in ’08, and Alabama versus Texas in ’09.
Also, if the SEC wants to keep their national title streak going, Alabama or LSU is their best chance, because South Carolina and Auburn aren’t nearly as a complete team.
