LSU vs. Alabama has become one the most important rivalries in college football, and Saturday's much awaited showdown will add another momento…
ON THE CRIMSON TIDE OFFENSE
LEADERS: Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, running back Najee Harris, wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.
There's no telling whether Tagovailoa will be back from his Oct. 20 ankle surgery, but Bama has other horses to pressure any defense. It ranks ninth nationally with 506.6 yards per game, including 338.6 passing with a trio of dangerous receivers. Alabama isn't careless with the ball, either, with just five giveaways in eight games.

ON THE CRIMSON TIDE DEFENSE
LEADERS: Linebacker Anfernee Jennings, cornerback Trevon Diggs, linebacker Terrell Lewis.
This defense has been racked by injuries, none bigger than star linebacker Dylan Moses in the preseason, but it ranks 16th in FBS in allowing 307.5 yards per game. The Tide is strong against the pass, where it ranks 13th nationally in giving up 180.1 yards per game. Alabama also shares the SEC lead with 18 takeaways — 10 on interceptions.
Alabama has put at least 40 points on the scoreboard in seven of eight games and has outscored its opponents by 267 points, but the Crimson Tide hasn't really been tested on both sides of the ball in eight games. Still, it's hard to find a weakness on this team.
