Alabama vs LSU Kickoff Time, TV Announced

Three possibilities for kickoff time of the November 6 matchup between the Crimson Tide and LSU have been announced, but which specific television network will broadcast the game is yet to be determined.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — There were three possible scenarios for which time slot the Alabama game against LSU is played on November 6. 

With CBS opting for Alabama vs. Texas A&M as its game of the week, LSU at Alabama fell to ESPN, which opted for a 6 p.m. kickoff. 

The decision was dependent on which games between Georgia and Missouri and Auburn and Texas A&M are selected for two of the three available time slots, and the decision will be made upon conclusion of this week's games on October 30.

As for Alabama, the 7-1 Crimson Tide is on its bye week this week and won't play again until it hosts LSU next month. The Tigers, which will arrive in Tuscaloosa with a 4-4 record this season, also have an off week after losing to Ole Miss on Saturday.

The last time these two programs met was December 5 of last year at LSU, when top-ranked Alabama left Baton Rouge with a 55-17 win over the Tigers.

All-time, the next meeting will be the 86th. The series record favors Alabama by a tally of 54-26-5 with the Crimson Tide also leading in its home matchups, 24-17-2.

 The first game between the two schools was played in 1895.

However, this year's game features a storyline which wasn't present during the past few occasions: LSU's Ed Orgeron will be coaching in his last game versus Alabama after agreeing to resign after the 2021 season.

In four meetings with the Crimson Tide at LSU, the Tigers head coach has a 1-3 record with the 2019 game at Bryant-Denny Stadium the lone win.
