I was on LSU for that game and I know that I felt pretty fortunate to win that bet. I don't think Bama could be more motivated for this game tonight.
That's just my thoughts. GL to you which ever side you are on
I think one of the biggest misconceptions is that Alabama outplayed LSU in the first meeting. Sure, Bama missed a bunch of field goals, but none of the missed fg's were chip shots (44,50,49,52). Bama made it into the redzone only one time the entire game, including overtime, which was in the 2nd quarter. Bama ran a total of 4 plays inside the redzone, a 1 yard run to the 18yd line, another 1 yard run to the 17yd line, an incomplete pass on 3rd and 8 from the 17yd line, and a 34 yard field goal which they converted. This does not equal dominance over another team, not at all.
If you do not believe what I am saying, here is a link to the play-by-play of the last game.
