TUSCALOOSA, AL (WAFB) -

LSU faces its biggest test of the year Saturday night against No. 2 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

The Tigers (6-2, 3-1) have won three straight SEC games after the shocking loss to Troy in September.

Alabama (8-0, 5-0) is yet to be tested this season and opponents are scoring just under 10 points a game against the nation's No. 1 defense.

The question once again this year will be, can the Tigers move the ball against Alabama?

Alabama Wins: Florida State (24-7), Fresno State (41-10), Colorado State (41-23), Vanderbilt (59-0), Ole Miss (66-3), Texas A&M (27-19), Arkansas (41-9), Tennessee (45-7)
