Via those I usually refer to as the best in the business, CFN:
CFN Prediction: Alabama 23 ... LSU 20
Scouts Inc. (ESPN Insider):
Prediction: Tigers 28, Crimson Tide 17
Stewart Mandel on CNNSI.com:
It's the players on the field who will decide the outcome, but we're expecting CBS's cameras to focus an inordinate amount of time on the opposing coaches. In fact, if the game goes to overtime, they may just have Nick Saban and Les Miles meet at midfield to thumb wrestle.
LSU 31, Alabama 24
Charles Hollis of the Birmingham News (guess who he picked):
Update 11/3/07 12:47 a.m. CT - One more via Bruce Feldman of ESPN Insider:
As for LSU, the off week came at the perfect time allowing a banged up group the chance to heal. The offense finally became its dynamic self again when Early Doucet re-emerged in the second half against Auburn. That was a stout defense the Bengal Tigers shredded for 23 second-half points two weeks ago. I don't see Alabama stopping LSU and if the Tigers can just play average (relative to their talent level) on defense, the Tide won't put up more than 17 points.
Prediction: LSU 30, Alabama 13
