No. 5 Alabama at LSU

When: Nov. 6.

Why it's must-see TV: This could be for the SEC West title. But even if it's not and even if the Nick Saban returning to the place he coached has gotten old, they haven't forgotten in Baton Rouge. This is a grudge match, pure and simple and the Tiger fans would like nothing better than to lay one on their old coach.

All-time record: Alabama leads the series 45-23-5.

Recent history: LSU had won five in a row against the Tide before Saban righted the ship with wins the last two seasons including 24-15 last season. In 2008, the Tide won 27-21 in overtime.

Quick hit: You want to talk about a home-field disadvantage? LSU neat Alabama in Baton Rouge in 1969, then didn't beat the Tide again in Tiger Stadium until 2000. During that stretch, LSU went 0-14-1 against Alabama at home.
