Alabama won last year’s game in Tiger Stadium on a touchdown pass in the final seconds from AJ McCarron to T.J. Yeldon, so LSU is relishing the opportunity to end their 12-game winning streak and hand them their first home loss since Oct. 27 last year vs. Texas A&M.

LSU did win the last game they played in Tuscaloosa when the Tigers left with a 9-6 overtime win, but have since dropped two to the Tide including the 2011 BCS Championship Game.
