LSU vs. Alabama Predictions: By Football Media Experts
Written by 

It's now only hours away from the big show-down between LSU and Alabama, a SEC college football game between No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation, which has captured the nation's attention  as if it were the BCS Championship game.  

Here's how the media is predicting the score of the "Tussle at Tuscaloosa":


Mike Huguenin, Rivals, Inc: LSU 20-17.

Larry Burton, Bleacher Report: Alabama 34-17.

Vegas Sports Betting: LSU covers.

Lars Anderson, Sports Elevated: Alabama 17-14.

Jeff Schultz, ajc.com: Bama covers 4 1/2.

Rob Weintraub, NBC Sports: LSU 27-21.

John Tamanda, NBC Sports: LSU 20-17.

Mike Bianchi, Orlando Sentinel: LSU over Bama by 5.

Stewart Mandell, Sports Elevated: Bama 27-20.

Les Miles

In honor of the Game of the Century and three of my favorite quotes, three of my indecipherable quotes from LSU, here are quotes from LSU coach Les Miles:

"There's a time when you have to put a lot of distractions in the perimeter."

"I think  this team has a lot of fundamental teammanship to it."

"The game looked a lot like I expected it to look  upon like I expected it to."
