LSU-Alabama Is Far From the Only Game With High Stakes This Weekend

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

There’s a big game this weekend in Alabama. You may have heard about it. President Trump is going to be there and other celebrities—like Alex Rodriguez and Spike Lee—have attended in the past. It’s No. 2 LSU vs. No. 3 Alabama (going by College Football Playoff rankings) and it’s the game we’ve been anxiously waiting for literally all season. The playoff implications couldn’t be higher, although we could potentially see both of these SEC West teams among the final four, no matter the outcome.

But for as excited as all of us are for this epic showdown between two explosive offenses, and for how interested we all are to analyze Bama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s health for ourselves, there are other important games with CFP significance this weekend.
