What's at stake for Alabama, LSU?

BATON ROUGE, La. -- It's been well documented how much this game means Saturday to Alabama.

The Crimson Tide, who moved up to No. 6 in the BCS standings, have a chance to keep climbing if they can win out, and play for their second straight BCS national championship.

The Tigers, No. 10 this week in the BCS standings, are probaby too far back to climb their way into the national championship game, but they could go a long way toward positioning themselves for an at-large berth in a BCS bowl with a win against Alabama.

To win the West, LSU would need to beat Alabama and then have Auburn lose its last two games to Georgia and Alabama.
