This week the Tigers are packing up and headed to Tuscaloosa for one of the most anticipated games of the 2013 LSU football season.
Even though we may not admit it, the driving force behind this rivalry is a respect for the other team's talent. ESPN writer Edward Aschoff explains,"This game has more of a mutual respect about it because of what is on the line when the clock hits zero. There isn't a shiny trophy or in-state bragging rights to claim. No, this game's winner is looking for bigger, more important awards, such as a division title and national championship." This is the game that players measure themselves by - it's the best against the best. It's a game that we all love.
