College Football Rankings 2011: Who's the Real King of the SEC, Alabama or LSU?
Alabama and LSU are deadlocked in the rankings, the Tide coming just after the Tigers in both the AP and Coaches’ Polls at one-two and two-three, respectively.
But who is the true King of the SEC?
History is with Alabama who won a national title as recently as 2009 and they have a much more glorified past. LSU won the national championship in 2007 but have not been back to a BCS Bowl since.
Additionally, Alabama’s defense has been more dominate, allowing less than 200 yards and nine points per game and now the Tide have played Arkansas and Florida. But it’s not like the LSU defense has been bad either, they’ve been one of the most impressive units in the entire sport, effectively shutting down Oregon, Mississippi State and West Virginia.
Still, though, there is just an air about this LSU team that is unmatched. Maybe it is all media hype but when you watch the Tigers play they just look like they are supposed to win football games.
When these two teams play in November, home field advantage could play a big role in the game which would favor Alabama but if the teams were to play tomorrow on a neutral field, it would be hard not to make LSU the favorite.
