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 dominated this series historically with a 55-26-5 record. It’s a matchup that goes back to 1895, and outside of a few runs of LSU wins, this has been all Alabama. 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 823 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.
Alabama vs. LSU All-Time Records
All-Time Win Pct.
The Crimson Tide hung on to beat Texas 20-19, but even with the win, they lost their number one ranking. The Tigers had a get-right game against Southern as they needed to get a win under their belt after a disastrous loss to Florida State in week one. LSU did that, knocking off Southern 65-17 in Death Valley.
In week three, Alabama gets to try and iron out what plagued them in a narrow win over Texas as they host Louisiana-Monroe. LSU, on the other hand, opens up conference play with a home game against Mississippi State. It is a game that LSU head coach Brian Kelly needs to win if he wants to settle down the Tiger fan base.
The two teams are set to square off again on November 5 in Tiger Stadium. The Crimson Tide has won the last two meetings and should be picked to win again this season.
