With their playoff lives potentially on the line, LSU and Alabama prepped for their CFP Thunderdome game this evening.

“Two teams enter, one team leaves,” said Alabama coach Nick Saban. “That’s how it’s been and how it always shall be.”

LSU coach Les Miles acknowledged how difficult it would be to win on the road. “Heck, of course I’d like to be playing at home,” said Miles. “But I’m confident we’re headed into Bartertown, pardon me… Tuscaloosa with the better team.”

In accordance with the laws of the Thunderdome, Tina Turner will preside and sing the national anthem.
