I sincerely thought that I’d seen it all after the way the Michigan-Michigan State game ended a few weeks back. But as any wise man will attest, the more I know, the less I realize I actually do know. Because DID YOU SEE THE ENDING TO THE DUKE vs. MIAMI game?! In the words of our youth, “I, like, can’t even.” Feast thine eyes upon madness, dear readers.
That GIF might lead to some rule changes in the near future, but it’s still pretty fun to watch regardless. Unless you’re a Duke fan… Moving on!
Marquee Matchup: #2 LSU vs. #4 Alabama, 11/7, 8:00PM ET on CBS
Everyone’s going to be glued to the TV for this one. In a game that features the two best running backs in the country, the focus will be on which of these teams can build a lead early. Bama is built to stop the run; LSU is built to run. Bama is built to run; LSU is only allowing 15.2 more rush yards/game. Noticing some similarities in play-style here? What I’m saying is basically that this game will be more unpredictable than knowing whether or not HBO will ever reveal that Tyrion Lannister is, in fact, a Targaryen.
This game is pretty much a coin-toss. If the Tigers catch an early lead, the game will go in favor of Les Miles and croux (look, Ma, I’m Cajun!). But this game isn’t going down in Death Valley. It’s happening in Tuscaloosa. Ergo, I like the Tide to roll by the slimmest of margins. Derrick Henry, Nick Saban & Co. light the victory cigars and keep hope of a playoff berth alive for one more weekend. My Prediction: Alabama 21, LSU 18
Confetti Corn Dog Hot Dog Topper
Nope, absolutely no reason why I’d feature this delicious confetti corn dog topping in a blog post about an LSU-Alabama game. Has absolutely nothing to do with any SEC bias I have towards anyone, and is in no way meant to be suggestive. Not even a little bit. Besides, hot dogs are an All-American tailgating staple. Why wouldn’t I feature hot dogs with irresistible accoutrements, people?! So whip up some dogs, tastily top them with the below, and nosh while enjoying what should be an enjoyable week 10 of college football. Cheers everyone!
