Lee Corso on College GameDay picked the # 13 LSU Tigers to defeat the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide. It’s the second straight year that Corso has picked the Tigers to beat the Tide.
Corso said he picked Bama to win 25 times. He then asked for his favorite song to be played, “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Then, he says that he needs a new song, which appeared to be the LSU fight song. He then picked LSU.
The Crimson Tide are the #1 team in the country. The LSU Tigers are #13 and are under an interim head coach Ed Orgeron, who took over in Sept. after the team fired Les Miles following a 2-2 start.
Under Miles, when Corso picked the Tigers to win last year’s meeting, the Tigers were defeated 30-16 at Alabama.
The Crimson Tide have dominated the past five meetings. They’ve outscored the Tigers 130 to 63.
The Tigers fans have to go back to Nov. 5, 2011 to see their last win in this rivalry. The Tigers won this game, 9-6, at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The Tide are averaging 43.9 points per game, while the Tigers are only averaging 29.9 points. Both teams are averaging more than 400 yards per game, as Alabama is averaging 498 yards per game.
The Tigers are averaging 423.9 yards per game.
Jalen Hurts leads the Bama attack with 1,549 passing yards. The freshman had 11 touchdowns to five interceptions.
Purdue transfer Danny Etling has 1,129 yards for the Tigers. He has seven touchdowns to three interceptions.
