9SPORTS: LSU vs Bama could be in primetime

Posted: Updated:

The epic college football showdown between the number-one ranked LSU and number-two ranked Alabama will likely be moved to a primetime kickoff on CBS, WAFB's Jacques Doucet reports.

The game is currently scheduled to begin at 2:30 on November 5th.  However, CBS is considering moving the kickoff to that night, WAFB 9SPORTS reports.

Doucet says the possible move is contingent on both LSU and Alabama winning their games this Saturday.   An upset loss by either teams likely throws the scenario out the window, Doucet reported.

LSU is favored by 21 points at home against the #20 Auburn Tigers Saturday, while Alabama is nearly a 30-point pick to maul the struggling and visiting Tennessee Volunteers.
