Alabama and LSU are squaring off in an SEC West showdown in Tuscaloosa on Saturday, and while the game isn’t as high profile as it has been in recent years, it still has major conference implications.
The game is on CBS on Saturday night, and perhaps that’s why ESPN made an egregious error regarding the location of the game.
A graphic appeared on ESPN about the game, and it mistakenly said LSU is hosting the game in Baton Rouge.
To be fair, it doesn’t matter where this game will be played — Alabama is probably going to win it no matter what.
Nick Saban’s team has beaten LSU in six straight meetings, and the last time the Tigers defeated the Tide was in the “Game of the Century” in 2011 when LSU won 9-6 in overtime.
Perhaps the ESPN people are preparing for next year’s game in Baton Rouge. Maybe the Tigers will have a better chance next season.
