The Alabama football team’s offense will need to be its best defense against the Tigers. LSU’s offense is equally as productive and fast-paced as the Tide’s, and one of the keys will be to keep Joe Burrow and his litany of wide receivers on the sidelines. As counterintuitive as it sounds, Sarkisian will need to slow the Alabama offense down Saturday afternoon. Tua Tagovailoa – assuming he plays – and company will need long, sustained drives.
The offensive line will need to play their best game of the year thus far. This seems to be likely as they have grown tremendously and achieved some much-needed continuity as of late.
