It’s a weekly occurrence these days when a member of the national media “puts himself out there” and picks Alabama to take a loss.
Well, it’s now Skip Bayless’ turn.
On today’s episode of “Undisputed,” the FOX Sports analyst predicted LSU would top Alabama 20-19 on Saturday night.

Bayless said LSU running back Leonard Fournette got caught “feeling yourself a little too much” going into last year’s game in Tuscaloosa, when he had 31 yards on 19 carries.
“It was humiliating to the core for this young man,” Bayless said. “And he is a stud young man. And he’s had to stew and simmer about this for a long time, for a whole year.”
Bayless also said interim coach Ed Orgeron’s creativity on offense and motivation will play a big factor.
“These Tigers are going to see red when they come out on Saturday night against St. Nick’s team because that’s all they’ve heard all week is St. Nick this and that.
“And I’m here to tell you: LSU is being dramatically underrated because they came very close to being unbeaten going into this game.”
