Nick Saban and Team Arrive in Baton Rouge for Big Game on Saturday

ATLANTA (AP) - Number one ranked Alabama has the LSU Tigers right where they want them - in Tiger Stadium, in Baton Rouge.

At least, the Crimson Tide should feel that way given their record against the Tigers on their home field. Alabama's 43-23-5 series leads includes a better record in Baton Rouge than anywhere else - 24-8-2.

LSU fans are eager to change that trend, since the Alabama coach making his first college appearance in Tiger Stadium as a visitor is Nick Saban, the former LSU coach.

Last year, in Tuscaloosa, LSU came from behind to beat Alabama thanks to a John Parker Wilson fumble late in the game. Alabama wants to avenge that loss on Saturday. Alabama hasn't lost this season, while LSU has lost two SEC games.

The WSFA 12 Sports Team will be live in Baton Rouge on Saturday to bring you the latest on the big game.
