Julio Jones and Patrick Peterson are ready for Round 3.

Jones, No. 5 Alabama's star receiver, and Peterson - perhaps the nation's top cornerback for No. 12 LSU - square off in their third head-to-head matchup Saturday at LSU's Tiger Stadium.

Jones predicts "a great night of football."

He also says Peterson has mostly played one-on-one against him in the previous two meetings and expects more of the same.

They've expressed mutual respect during the buildup to the game, not trash-talking.

Jones calls Peterson "by far' the best cornerback he has faced.

Peterson says Jones looked like NFL star Andre Johnson in his last game at Tennessee.

Both juniors are projected as first-round NFL draft picks either after this season or next.
