You can add this fuel to a fire that has been gaining momentum over the last two weeks as the heated rivlary between Alabama and LSU story line continues. During the bye week, Tigers linebacker said that they were going to “dominate” the game, which got a big reaction from Tide players and fans.
Alabama has won each of the last five meetings. This one will kick off in Death Valley at 8 p.m. ET.
