This weekend’s headlining matchup in college football is an SEC clash between the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide and No. 15 LSU Tigers. In anticipation of the big game in Baton Rouge, Alabama head coach Nick Saban is keeping his team focused .
LSU stumbled out of the gate this season which led to the firing of head coach Les Miles.
Since then, however, the Tigers have felt a resurgence under the direction of interim head coach Ed Orgeron. In fact, in every game Orgeron has coached since taking over, the LSU offense has broken a new offensive record.
Because of that newfound success, Saban is not approaching the LSU game as a meeting with a 5-2 team.
Instead, Saban and the Crimson Tide are preparing to face an unbeaten.
Saban: This is an undefeated team, to me, because they're undefeated since Ed Oregeron took over.

That’s a great approach to take in a game that will have SEC title and potentially College Football Playoff implications.
Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET on CBS and ESPN’s College GameDay will be on the scene to get the fans rocking bright and early at Tiger Stadium.
