So the LSU Tigers football team were off last weekend on their bye week. The Tigers were off preparing for a huge SEC West showdown with Alabama this weekend.

Everyone knows how big of an LSU Tiger fan I am and this weekend is the pinnacle of the season!  LSU will travel to Tuscaloussa to take on the Crimson Tide.  #4 LSU and #7 Alabama will square off in primetime at 7:00 p.m. and the game will be televised nationally on CBS.

Despite being of last weekend, the Tigers still moved up in both national college football polls.  LSU moved up from #5 to #4 in both the AP Poll and the Coaches Poll.  Here are the November 1st rankings.
