AP VIDEO: Defense Could Decide LSU, ‘Bama Winner


VIDEO: AP College Football Writer Ralph Russo previews the meeting of No. 1 LSU and 2nd-ranked Alabama, a game that features two of the best defenses in the nation.

The AP’s video analysis of this game looks at both defenses and offenses.

“Both teams are incredibly athletic, very strong, very powerful teams,” Russo said.

Another interesting point, Russo believes neither team has a great quarterback.

“Both teams are getting really good quarterback play, but you don’t necessarily have great players at the positions,” Russo said.

Russo even examines the ramifications for teams like Oklahoma State and Stanford. What will happen to them and what happens to the Alabama-LSU loser?
