Alabama had to drop in the polls after its 9-6 overtime loss in Tuscaloosa to LSU. But how far?

By Mitch Light, 2 years 8 months ago
By Mitch Light We’ve all seen the game by now. Some have called it a classic. Others say it was disappointing due to a lack of offense. We can all agree, however, that there were some serious athletes on the field Saturday night in Tuscaloosa. LSU won the game, 9–6 in overtime, but one game isn’t a large enough sample size to determine which team is better. The Tigers are ranked No. 1, and...
