For weeks, the titanic clash between Alabama and LSU has been highlighted on fans’ calendars. So it should come as no surprise that ESPN’s College GameDay also has that matchup high on its priority list — so much so that the show will broadcast from Tuscaloosa, Ala., for the second time this season on Saturday.
“We’re coming back to Bama. See you in a week, @AlabamaFTBL and @LSUfball,” the program announced via its Twitter account.
Alabama last hosted College GameDay on Sept. 19, when it suffered a dramatic 43-37 loss to Ole Miss. The No. 7 Tide could face an even tougher challenge the second time around in No. 4 LSU, which, like the Rebels, will march into Bryant-Denny Stadium with a spotless record.
This next visit will mark the fourth time in the last five years that the ESPN show has been on hand for the Alabama-LSU rivalry, according to Michael Casagrande of AL.com. The Crimson Tide have won four straight meetings dating back to its 21-0 victory in the 2011 BCS National Championship game. LSU had picked up a 9-6 overtime win in Tuscaloosa earlier that season.
