BATON ROUGE – There was a time not too long ago when LSU coach Les Miles was kryptonite to the Superman of college football, Alabama coach Nick Saban.On Nov. 5, 2011, Miles became the first coach to beat Saban three times in as little as five years since Joe Tiller at Purdue and Lloyd Carr at Michigan did it when Saban was Michigan State’s coach from 1995-99. Steve Spurrier beat LSU when Saban was in his first two seasons as the Tigers’ head coach in 2000 and 2001, but did not get him again until 2010 with Spurrier at South Carolina and Saban at Alabama.And Miles did it with gusto — 41-34 in Tuscaloosa, Ala., in 2007 against Saban’s first Tide team after leaving the Miami Dolphins with two touchdowns in the final 2:49, 24-21 in 2010 with a Miles’ classic, fourth-and-one tight end reverse to set up the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, and 9-6 in overtime in Tuscaloosa that November night in 2011 when Miles’ No. 1 Tigers beat Saban and his No. 2 Tide at his own conservative game with Saban trying a wide receiver pass that backfired when LSU safety Eric Reid intercepted it in the end zone in the fourth quarter.At that point, Miles was 3-2 against Saban and would enter the BCS national championship game at 13-0 and within a win of tying Saban in national championships at 2-2 with Miles and LSU winning it in 2007 and Saban winning it at LSU in 2003 and at Alabama in 2009. But LSU ended up having to play Alabama again and lost the BCS title, 21-0, in New Orleans, two months later, then fell 21-17 in the final minute in Baton Rouge just 10 months after that, and again by 21 in a 38-17 loss in Tuscaloosa last year.Miles and his No. 14 Tigers (7-2, 3-2 SEC) enter Saturday’s 7 p.m. CBS prime time game against No. 4 Alabama (7-1, 4-1 SEC) on a three-game losing skid to the Tide with Miles 3-5 against Saban.“You know those last two were just a pain in the tail,” Miles said during his weekly radio show Wednesday night. LSU passed for 241 yards to Alabama’s 179 last year, but suffered a critical fumble by fullback J.C. Copeland just before crossing the goal line for what would have been a 7-0 first quarter lead. Another LSU fumble led to Alabama taking a 3-0 lead. In 2012, the Tigers outgained the Tide 435 to 331 but missed a chance to ice the game late with some conservative decisions by Miles.“I really don’t want to feel that again,” said LSU left guard Vadal Alexander, who played in the 2012 loss. “And I’m going to do everything in my power to not let that happen again.”LSU can remain alive for the SEC West title with a victory as there is a chance there could be a five-way tie at 6-2 among the Tigers, Alabama, Mississippi State, Auburn and Ole Miss. The winner of this game has won SEC West titles in 2012, ’11 ’09, ’08 and ’07.“It’s in the past, but they took something from us,” said senior safety Ronald Martin.A win in the 2012 game would have left LSU at 11-1 entering the SEC Championship Game and within range of another BCS national title shot.“We still talk about the losses to them, but we’re a whole different team now,” said junior linebacker Kwon Alexander of Oxford, Ala. “We can’t just go back to those games. We have to focus on these games right here.”Alabama is a touchdown favorite, but LSU beat the only team — Ole Miss by 10-7 two weeks ago — that beat Alabama, 23-17 on Oct. 4. The Tide also struggled to beat Arkansas (4-5, 0-5 SEC), 14-13, on Oct. 11 and allowed 383 yards to Tennessee (4-5, 1-4 SEC) in a 34-20 win on Oct. 25.“I think they’re a very similar team to some of the great teams that he (Saban) has had in the past,” Miles said. “A very dominant defense, very capable offense, balanced on the offensive side. It’ll be a great matchup.”The game forecasts as low scoring with Alabama coming in with the nation’s No. 1 run defense with 78.1 yards allowed and the Tigers showcasing an improved running game in recent weeks with freshman tailback Leonard Fournette.“These games are traditionally very tough, physical games between two ranked teams,” Saban said. “And it is certainly not going to be any different this years. They have a very good team that is playing their best football of the year. They have an excellent running game.”Both teams have enjoyed an open date before what has been the most physical game of the season for each.“You are sore for a few days after this one,” Martin said.“I’m kind of anticipating a classic myself,” Miles said. “I look back on these games, and they have all been that style of game — a last drive or certainly the last half of the game or quarter until the game’s decided. You plan on playing four quarters in this game for sure.”No. 4 Alabama (7-1, 4-1 SEC) at No. 14 LSU (7-2, 3-2) WHAT: Alabama at LSU.WHERE: Tiger Stadium (capacity, 102,321) in Baton Rouge.WHEN: 7 p.m. Saturday.TV: CBS.RADIO: LSU Radio Network.WEATHER: There will be a chill in the air, particularly if LSU loses.

LSU is second in that tiebreaker now as its East opponents Florida and Kentucky are a combined 5-7. Auburn is first in that category now as its East opponents Florida and Tennessee are 6-7. … Should Auburn lose at Georgia next week and at Alabama on Nov. 29 to finish with three losses, LSU would win the four-team tiebreaker before getting to the East opponents’ tiebreaker.PREDICTION: LSU 20, Alabama 10.THIS GAME DAY IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY: On Nov. 8, 1986, No. 18 LSU upset No. 6 Alabama, 14-10, in Birmingham to go to 3-1-1 in the series since 1982.

The cold weather impacted every aspect off the game leading to the low scoring game.Minnesota opened the scoring on their first drive with a 49-yard field goal in the 1st quarter. That was just the first of three field goals on the night for Vikings Kicker Kai Forbath. Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Skip About Connatix V56892 A few drives later Minnesota went on a 5 play, 68 yard drive capped off by a Case Keenum touchdown to Stefon Diggs. Diggs finished the night with five receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown.Keenum struggled throughout the night in the cold weather, he finished just 14 of 25 with 1 touchdown. The offense did not do much but it did just enough.The key to the Vikings win was the defense. Minnesota turned Packers QB over twice. None bigger than when Minnesota safety Harrison Smith intercepted Brett Hundley in the red zone in the first half.Minnesota is now 12-3 on the season and has clinched the NFC North title and a spot in the playoffs. With a Carolina Panthers loss this weekend Minnesota would secure a 1st round bye.
Auto (360p) About Connatix V56490 Any time my dad went to the convenience store in 1993, there was a good chance that he was going to bring back some baseball cards. Scratch that- there was a 100% chance that he would bring back cards.There was always something to chase: an Iooss Collection or Then and Now card in a pack of Upper Deck, a Diamond King in Donruss, Topps Gold in the Topps base set or First Day Production cards in Topps Stadium Club.If we went to the cabin, we were scoping out the cards in all of the rural gas stations. If we went to the cities, we would stop by Shinder’s or Target for our fix. There were cards everywhere and we were determined to buy them all. 1080p HD 360p 1/1 About Connatix V56490 Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Skip 720p HD If we hit a big one, we would either set up shop at a local card show, or we would bring it to Hall of Fame Card Shop in Apple Valley to wheel and deal with the owner, Tory.The hottest cards at the time were the brand-new Upper Deck SPs, with FOIL rookies like Derek Jeter, Carlos Delgado and Manny Ramirez and die-cut inserts of the game’s biggest stars.One day, I pulled a Ken Griffey, Jr. Topps Stadium Club First Day Production card, which was considered to be very rare at the time. Book value had the card at around $150 or so. This was a great pull, because we knew that Tory had a weakness for Griffey cards.A trade was made: the Griffey card straight up for a full box of Upper Deck SP packs. Tory got another Griffey for his collection, and we got an entire box of the hottest cards in the hobby to sit and open in our dining room that night.So, how did the trade turn out, 27 years later? Well, let’s see how much the Griffey sells for on Ebay right now. Looks like it’s worth about $50.Now, lets look at an unopened box of Upper Deck SP.(searches on Ebay)(sees boxes going for $3,500)(throws up a little in mouth)(brushes teeth)Wow. $3,500! Too bad we didn’t last two hours keeping that box unopened, let alone 27 years! I could have started a college fund for my kid!Hall of Fame closed close to 20 years ago and is now called “The Ballpark” in Apple Valley. I wonder what ever happened to Tory and that Griffey card?
