BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

As LSU tries to beat Alabama after five straight losses to the Crimson Tide, Tiger fans are hoping a different history repeats itself.

In some dark basement, under a single light and a cloud of cigarette smoke ... there's one guy trying to find the rarest sports stats imaginable. He may have just found the Great White Buffalo of stats.

It's 2016 ... Cleveland just lost a game seven of the World Series in extra innings, there are two ties in the NFL and LSU is about to play the No. 1 team in the country at home.

2016:

Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in extra innings in Game 7
Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals tied 6-6 in Week 7
Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals tied 27-27 in Week 8
LSU plays Alabama in Death Valley

1997:

Florida Marlins topped the Cleveland Indians 3-2 in extra innings in Game 7
Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens tied 10-10 in Week 12
New York Giants and Washington Redskins tied 7-7 in Week 13
LSU knocked off No. 1 Florida 28-21 in Death Valley

How's that for prophecy?

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. The game will air on WAFB.
