The first meeting was a defensive battle and quite frankly, boring.  With more than a month to prepare, the sequel should be a little more exciting.

#1 LSU takes on #2 Alabama tonight for that big crystal trophy thing that Oklahoma State will bitch about being partially theirs considering they finished the season undefeated.  A playoff system would just be plain silly, wouldn't it? /sarcasm off

To get you semi-lathered up (or persuade you to whom you should bet on), I offer the following video preview.  Geaux Tigers or Roll Tide or ambivalence...ya!

You can watch it all tonight on ESPN beginning at 7:30 Central.
