|Will Brodie Croyle pass this test?|
A win for undefeated Alabama would make a statement about the Crimson Tide's place alongside USC and Texas in the hunt for the Rose Bowl, but will they score enough points to make their point to voters? Since losing wideout Tyrone Protho to a season-ending injury, Alabama has managed just one offensive touchdown in three SEC games.
Meanwhile, LSU could all but lock up a spot in the SEC title game with a win. But will the Tigers be sharp after back-to-back wins against North Texas and Appalachian State?
So what will happen on the field this Saturday? Will Brodie Croyle and Kenneth Darby get the Tide's offense rolling, or will LSU make their own push for a BCS bid behind JeMarcus Russell and Joseph Addai?
