BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA) It's a "big one" in Death Valley this weekend as Nick Saban returns to his former stomping grounds.
The Alabama Crimson Tide rolls into Tigertown this weekend ranked 6th in the latest edition of the BCS poll.
While much of the talk this week will be about coach Saban's return to Baton Rouge, LSU Coach Les Miles says this week's challenge is about the guys who put on the pads.
"I've never really looked at this game as being about the coaches," says Miles. "I have great respect for Coach Saban. I feel like he's done a great job. I really think its about LSU and Alabama players and taking it to the field and playing an aggressive college game. It's going to be noteworthy. I'm not focused on any comparison between myself and Coach Saban," says Miles.
Kick-off for this SEC showdown is scheduled for 2:30 PM saturday in Tiger Stadium.
