LSU football at Alabama picked for primetime TV
BATON ROUGE – LSU will face Alabama in a highly anticipated match-up with a 6:45 p.m. kick on November 4 in Tuscaloosa and will be televised on CBS.
The potential showdown for the SEC West will match-up two of the premiere teams in college football with both teams still searching for answers on different sides of the ball.
LSU's high powered offense will be a challenge for an Alabama team that has struggled to find it's footing this year both on offense and defense.
Both LSU and Alabama have open dates this week, the Tigers are coming off a 62-0 win over Army and stands at 6-2 overall and 4-1 in conference play, while Alabama improved to 7-1 overall and 5-0 in conference action following its 34-20 victory over Tennessee.
