No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 LSU are the last two teams at the beginning of the Amway Coaches poll to play in the regular season eight years ago. That game finished 9-6 in overtime and no touches of the ball were scored. That probably won't happen this year as both criminals rank among the top five in the country in terms of scoring.
In addition to the ability to decide SEC West, this game will also impact the Heisman Cup race against LSU's Joe Burrow and Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa among the top contenders for the award. The winner will receive a great boost.

Play this without Michael Divinity. There may indeed be some points on both sides this year, but the choice is for the home team to prevail.
