Tonight is the rematch of the infamous November "Game of the Century" between LSU and Alabama which LSU won by a grand score of 9-6. NO TDs, just 4 FGs in regulation and one in OT.
So the game was pretty boring from an offensive standpoint, but everything you could want from two tough teams. A defensive struggle that went into OT. I think that everyone would have enjoyed the game much more had it not been built up to be the best game of all time.
With that being said, I am of course a little disappointed that this game is a rematch. Had Houston or Boise St finished undefeated it would have been great to see those two play. Or maybe even Oregon where we could have all seen a high flying offense VS. a tough defense.
But you've probably read about this for the last couple of weeks so I won't delve into it.
Here is the pick. LSU!!!
LSU won the first game and there is no reason to believe they won't win the second. Since they defeated Alabama, they've gone on to crush Arkansas and Georgia to finish their undefeated season and win the SEC. Plus, they beat Oregon earlier in the year and have won a total of 8 games against ranked opponents.
No disrespect to Alabama, but I just don't think they will win tonight. They've only defeated four ranked opponents all year and I know they also beat Arkansas earlier in the year but that is really their only highlight win.
This game should be nothing like the first; I don't like doing the over/under but I'd bet that they'll go over the 40 1/2 points as well.
