LSU has come a long way since the humiliating week one loss to Florida State (sorry, I know it’s too soon). This season was supposed to be a rebuild, and now the Tigers find themselves competing for the SEC West against an Alabama team that in all honesty…looks beatable. As good of a team as Alabama has, they not only lost to Tennessee but there’s an argument that they looked worse against a Texas A&M team that’s an embarrassment to the SEC. Alright, maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s talk about what Alabama does right. Bryce Young might not be a Heisman this year, but he’ll still be a top-two quarterback selected in April. Young’s receiving core isn’t as talented as LSU’s, but his ability to extend plays is exceptional, which is why ‘Bama is averaging 274.4 passing yards per game. Another aspect of their game that Alabama does better than any other team in college football is their ability to put pressure on an opposing quarterback. Future first-round pick Will Anderson puts more pressure on opposing teams than a first-generation Asian American puts on their child come ACT time. Anderson has six sacks on the year, and Alabama’s sack rate of 7.62% is one of the best in the SEC.
In Nick Saban’s historic tenure in Tuscaloosa, his one weakness has been mobile quarterbacks. Cam Newton, Johnny Manziel, he who shall not be named from Clemson, and Tim Tebow have been the thorns in Nick Saban’s Hall of Fame career for a reason- they can escape from a pocket faster than an iPhone on Bourbon Street. And while Jayden Daniels has had some ups and downs this season, he’s the most athletic quarterback LSU has ever had and probably the fastest too. If Jayden Daniels can play the way he played against Ole Miss last weekend, Alabama’s proclivity to turn the ball over and sabotage themselves with penalties will give the Tigers a chance to punch them in the mouth. Brian Kelly left Notre Dame for a reason, to win games like this one. Kelly should be able to scheme up some RPOs that play on Daniels’ strengths of getting the ball out of his hands quickly and using his legs to gain first downs. Vegas likes Alabama -13.5, but LSU is primed for an upset. While all eyes might be on Tennessee vs. Georgia this Saturday, LSU matches up very well against Alabama’s most undisciplined football team in years.
