The Alabama-LSU is one shouldn’t generate much shock, although the way Ed Orgeron’s team rolls into Tuscaloosa — ranked No. 1 and boasting Heisman Trophy front-runner Joe Burrow and an offense averaging 46.8 points per game — certainly qualifies as a surprise.

LSU already has taken down three top-10 opponents and has played a more challenging schedule than Alabama.

Burrow and Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa both have been brilliant, although Tagovailoa will be limited or possibly out after undergoing ankle surgery on Oct. 20. LSU hasn’t beaten Alabama since the teams’ regular-season meeting in 2011 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
