In hour three of After Further Review, Matt continues to preview the LSU-Alabama matchup. Coach O updated the status of safety Grant Delpit on his radio show last night. The Tigers head coach is consistent that Delpit will be ready to go on Saturday despite not practicing all week. Matt runs through the picks of the national media for the big game.
Brett Hudson who covers Alabama for the Tuscaloosa News joins Matt to preview the Alabama-LSU matchup from the opposite side. The biggest storyline around the game is the health and status of Tide quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. Hudson gives us the latest.
“This has gone exactly as I thought it would from the moment we got that statement after the Arkansas game that he had the tight rope procedure,” Hudson said. “I never doubted he would play against LSU. Assuming his ankle takes well to his increasing practice workload on Thursday and Friday he will play.”
Are there ever games at Alabama that are bigger than others?
“They try to not make it that way,” Hudson said. “Certainly the circumstances around this game are making it harder. All the messaging in the building has been don’t let one game get bigger than the other.”
Musso catches you up on the former Tigers in the pros.
The guys wrap up with the video of the day.
