The Alabama football team practiced for two hours in full pads on Tuesday at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields, focusing on this week's game against LSU. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. CT on Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium. 

For the second time this season, the Crimson Tide will be featured on CBS during its primetime television slot with this game airing nationally on the network. Verne Lundquist will serve as the play-by-play announcer, Gary Danielson as the color analyst and Tracy Wolfson as the sideline reporter. 

"Watching film, LSU is big and strong," said junior defensive lineman Jesse Williams. "We play against a lot of big and strong teams as well. We just need to do what we have to do and play Alabama football and be physical." 

Saturday's game marks the 75th meeting between the Tide and Tigers. Overall, Alabama leads LSU in the series 45-24-5 and has claimed two of the last three meetings, including a 27-21 overtime victory in 2008 and a 24-15 win in 2009. The Tide also holds a 21-15-2 mark at home against the Tigers.
