LSU defensive back Dwayne Thomas is confident LSU can beat Alabama, and that might be an understatement.
The Crimson Tide have won every game against the Tigers since 2012 and he’s frankly tired of it.
Here’s what Thomas had to say on Wednesday:
“I really see us dominating this offense. I really see us dominating this team,” Thomas said of the top-ranked and unbeaten Tide, a team that’s won seven of its eight games this year by double digits.
“This is the year,” he said. “We’ve been letting them off the hook for the last couple of years. This is my senior year. We’re going out with a bang. It’s time for us to bring that win back. We’re going to be at home. I feel like we have the edge to take it to them, and we’re going to take it to them. I feel like we’re going to dominate this game.”
…“We put stuff up too. If that helps motivate them, so be it,” Thomas said. “We know what motivates us. We want that No. 1 next to their (name).”
It’s clear the No. 1 ranking doesn’t phase him or LSU. He doesn’t care about bulletin board material. A strong statement and to be expected in the heat of one of the most prominent rivalries in college football.
