It's hard to argue that the much-anticipated showdown between the No. 1 LSU Tigers and the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (8 pm ET on CBS, radio and online streaming info here) is the most-anticipated game of the year. Whether or not it will live up to the hype of being called Game of the Century remains to be seen.
It's the first time in nearly five seasons and the first time ever in SEC play that the top two teams in the country will meet in the regular season. The night start time is expected to bring in massive ratings, much to the delight of LSU fans used to watching their team play under the lights.
