(Sporting Alert) — No. 1 Alabama will look to avoid any dent to their perfect record this season when they take on No. 13 LSU at Bryant-Denny Stadium as Week 11 in the NCAAF hit full swing on Saturday.
The Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0 SEC) return to action on Saturday, following a bye week and will certainly be well rested to face the travelling Tigers (7-2, 3-2 SEC) who themselves are coming off a bye in Week 10.
The game has been highlighted all week and LSU head coach Les Miles says his players have been looking forward to such a match all season.
“I can tell you that our guys are in college football for these kind of games,” Miles said. “We look forward to playing in them.
“It’s a great opportunity for all. Any time you line up against Alabama, there’s a rivalry. There’s national prestige.
“I think the greatest compliment that we can pay an opponent is our best efforts, and certainly Alabama will get that.”
The defending champions Alabama, who beat Tennessee 45-10 in their last game, enter this contest game as an almost two-touch down favourite.
Meanwhile, after see No. 3 Oregon upset by No. 5 Stanford on Thursday night, Heisman Trophy candidate Jameis Winston and his No. 2 Florida State (8-0, 6-0 ACC) team go to Wake Forest with one thing in mind. Scoring a big win over the hosts at BB&T FIELD as they look to strengthen their position in the BCS standings.
Wake Forest are on a two game losing streak and are 0-2 against ranked teams, which sees many already putting a tick in the winners column for Florida State.
However, coach Jimbo Fisher, whose team can secure the ACC Atlantic Division with a win, isn’t getting too carried away and hope that his team will respect every opponent, ranked our unranked.
“Hopefully we’ve gotten that across, and we’re going to practice the same way for every game no matter who (the opponent) is,” he said.
Also in action on Saturday are No. 8 Missouri who travel to Kentucky, No. 9 Auburn, who will face Tennessee, No. 11 Miami (FL) play host to Virginia Tech, Kansas State are at No. 25 Texas Tech, while No. 16 Fresno State are at Wyoming.
Lots of games to watch on Saturday and several fans and coaches will be keeping a close eye on the all the results across the country.
