WATCH: LSU releases hype video for Alabama clash

Published Nov. 2, 2015 5:31 p.m. ET

LSU released an incredibly intense hype video ahead of its monumental clash this weekend against Alabama. 

In what may be the most redundant statement made in recent memory, this game has massive implications across the board. The winner of this contest in all likelihood will have the inside-track at winning the SEC West Division. 

Not only are the two schools geographic and competitive rivals, but there's considerable common ground when it comes to the recruiting trails. The winner of this game could impact a prospect's decision if the said athlete is looking at both schools. 

Since Nick Saban took over the Alabama job in 2007, the Crimson Tide have won six of the past nine meetings between the two programs. 

LSU is hoping to reverse those fortunes on Saturday, en route to a potential SEC Championship Game appearance.
