This is it, the last college football game of the year. Saban heard everyone’s complaint about Alabama having been there too often, so he did the nice thing and missed this one to let others have a chance. In doing so, he was able to nail down his early enrollee dozen, deal with draft decisions and set himself up for a big run next year and beyond.
Tonight, however, belongs to LSU and Clemson. One of the Tigers has to win. So it is.
