LSU vs. Alabama: Series History, All-Time Records, Wins

The Alabama-LSU game is one of the most anticipated games of the SEC season for various reasons. Both programs have been in the running for national titles recently, and the SEC West usually goes to the winner of this game. Also, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban has led both programs to national titles. After winning the BCS National Championship with the Tigers, he bolted for the Miami Dolphins before returning to the SEC as the Tide’s new head coach.

Alabama vs. LSU Series History

Alabama has historically dominated this series with a 55-26-5 record. It’s a matchup that goes back to 1895 and has been all Alabama outside of a few runs of LSU wins. From 2000-2011 nine of LSU’s 26 all-time wins occurred. Alabama then dominated the sport, which included LSU. The only loss by Alabama to LSU since that 9-6 Tiger win in 2011 was in 2019 when the Tigers won the national championship.

LSU’s 829 wins are 12th all-time, while Alabama sits second in that category. In the other three categories, LSU is in the top 32 but is not in the same conversation historically as Alabama, which ranks in the top seven for each.

In an overtime thriller, the LSU Tigers knocked off the Alabama Crimson Tide 32-31. The win puts the Tigers in control of their own destiny in the SEC West and gives them some life in the race for a spot in the College Football Playoff at No. 7. For the Crimson Tide, the loss is their second of the season, falling to No. 9 in the College Football Playoff poll. While that may not be a cause for concern with other programs, Alabama does not control its own destiny for the first time in a long time.

With a win over Arkansas last week, the Tigers clinched the SEC West crown for the first time since 2019. Brian Kelly has turned the ship around after a season-opening loss to Florida State. This week the Tigers host UAB before they take on Texas A&M in the season finale. LSU is 1-1 against the Blazers all-time.

Alabama pulled off a come-from-behind road win over Ole Miss last week. While the SEC West title has been lost, the Crimson Tide are still in play for a ten-win season and a New Year’s Six Bowl. This week they take on the Governors of Austin Peay.
