Take a closer look at these 3 WRs on the injury report...only one of those three has even caught a pass all year. And he's the 4th ranked Bama WR with 21 catches, 270 yards, and one TD. Hardly a huge dent missing. Guy only had 2 catches for 38 yards in first LSU game. That being said, he still is 50/50 to play.
Game could go either way, but when I watched the first game (and am no fan of either team), whole game I felt Bama was slighlty better team. I doubt Bama will shank the win away again. Those betting the over have complete amnesia. It was like watching a carwreck the first game...nobody could do anything on offense hardly. I almost fell asleep. lol These defenses are just that damn fast, big, and great. Neither offense can matchup with the defense on any consistent of a manner.
Each team could scheme for 3 months, and these defenses would still be able to hold the inferior offenses in check. No way either team breaks 17. Not to mention, with iffy QB's, neither coach will want to make the costly offensive error/turnover just like they didn't want to in the first game. Expect more of the same as before. Should be around 16-13...and leaning Bama this time.
