Of course...we always need AU to lose. :wink: Actually the winner of AU/LSU will probably go on to win the SEC West.
I'm not trying to discount us. I'd love for Alabama to be in ATL (it has been way too long!), but realistically to get through UT, LSU, MSU and AU will be a huge challenge.
With the way college football is going these days the winner of the AU/LSU game could still have another loss and open the door for the loser. The winner will definitely control its own destiny though.
