WATCH: LSU says 'we ain't backing down' in electric hype video for Alabama game
After last year’s 24-10 loss at Alabama, LSU coach Ed Orgeron issued a fierce proclamation when asked if he was confident the Tigers would match up better with the Crimson Tide in 2018.
“We coming,” Orgeron said while staring down the reporter, “and we ain’t backing down.”
That determined statement has become a rallying cry for LSU this season, and now it’s the centerpiece of the team’s hype video ahead of Saturday’s titanic clash with Alabama. You can view the video, which features intense narration from former Tigers standout Ryan Clark, below.

Saturday’s game will give LSU a chance to make good on Orgeron’s promise from last year. The No. 3 Tigers have defied expectations all year and look to be the stiffest test top-ranked Alabama will face all season.
The winner will more than likely claim the SEC West crown and advance to the conference title game, where a win would almost certainly result in a College Football Playoff berth.
Don’t expect either team to back down when kickoff finally arrives.
