Alabama still has an excellent road to the College Football playoffs, but every game is a must-win now for the Tide. LSU Quarterback Jayden Daniels, with a big game and win here, could become a leading Heisman Trophy candidate.
Louisiana State does not recognize the letter D as part of its name.
Alabama’s offense may be exciting, but their defense looks like opponents are oil-coated. Yes, Auburn and Army can deliver power plays as Alabama does; so must Alabama possess strength on defense.
Yes, Alabama can be inconsistent, and there may be times when its line cannot pass protect, or Jalen Milroe misses easy plays – yet there’s always that excellent combination of running backs and downfield passing that can take advantage of any miscues or breakages to put points on the board.
Once in full effect, Alabama’s Crimson Tide offense can be one of the most powerful in America.
LSU boasts talent on defense, yet Milroe will find ways to exploit LSU’s weaknesses on offense and can pose significant threats when the defense allows him to run free. Though not Daniels in terms of production, Milroe averages nearly 11 yards per throw and can take control of games when defenses try and stop him.
Yes, Alabama does play some defense.
No matter whether it be against Tennessee in the first half, Texas A&M in the second quarter or Arkansas in the second half, Ole Miss in the first half or Texas in the fourth quarter – Alabama’s Tide have had their moments. They have just not played an entire game from beginning to end well so far this season.
LSU should take full advantage of their opportunity, with an offense that ranks first nationally for third down conversions, first downs and scoring.
Alabama may boast plenty of defensive talent, yet has allowed over 200 passing yards against opponents that could throw the ball. Soon enough, though, Jayden Daniels and company will likely push that total past 300.
On the other side, Alabama’s offense has been solid – in spurts – while pass protection has been an issue. LSU’s pass rush may not have been great this past week; however, enough plays should be made behind the line that should keep Alabama at bay occasionally.
Alabama has generally managed to shrug off its mistakes, turning the ball over twice in each of its last three games, while LSU has given up only three turnovers since opening against Florida State.
Alabama’s defense will be the difference in a fairly high-scoring game. Take the Tide and give the points. Alabama 34 LSU 27.
