SEC Game of the Year In what may be the game of the year in the SEC, #12 Alabama travels to Death Valley to take on the #3 LSU Tigers. The Bayou Bengals are favored by 3 points in this game, but the Tide is hoping to disappoint the experts. This game amounts to the SEC West Championship game, so both sides are feeling pressure. "Not so fast my friend," says ESPN analyst Lee Corso. "Even if Alabama can pull off the upset, they still have to get past Auburn in the Iron Bowl next week. I can't buy into the championship idea quite yet." Either way, this is a huge game that will largely decide the SEC champion this year.
