It feels like a while since Alabama-LSU has been

It feels like a while since Alabama-LSU has been
...well...Alabama-LSU. Although each of the last 12 meetings have come with both programs in the Top 25 Green Bay Packers T-Shirt , the two programs have not met with both in the top five since the 2012 season.That changes today, as #1 Alabama travels to Baton Rouge to play #3 LSU. Ed Orgeron has the Tigers overachieving this year, as LSU was not expected to be a significant contender. Instead, they sit at 7-1 as the highest-ranke one-loss team in the country. It helps that their one loss came to a ranked team — the Florida Gators — and they followed that loss up with a convincing win over then-number two Georgia. That was their third win over a team ranked in the top ten going into the game, and it vaulted them right back up into the top five.Both teams feature loads of NFL talent, as always. There could be as many as eight first-round draft picks on the two squads for next year’s draft alone, plus any number of highly-rated underclassmen who won’t yet be eligible for the draft in 2019. So if there’s one game worth tuning in for today, make it that one tonight.Here’s your full schedule of notable games around the country today.Early GamesLouisville Cardinals at #2 Clemson Tigers12:00 Noon ETMemorial Stadium, ClemsonABCNebraska Cornhuskers at #10 Ohio State Buckeyes12:00 Noon ETOhio Stadium, Columbus, OHFOX#20 Texas A&M Aggies at Auburn Tigers11:00 AM CT (12 Noon ET)Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, ALESPNRutgers Scarlet Knights at Wisconsin Badgers11:00 AM CT (12 Noon ET)Camp Randall Stadium, Madison, WIBTN#24 Iowa State Cyclones at Kansas Jayhawks11:00 AM CT (12 Noon ET)David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, Lawrence, KSFSN RegionalAfternoon Games#6 Georgia Bulldogs at #9 Kentucky Wildcats3:30 PM ETKroger Field Green Bay Packers Hats , Lexington, KYCBS#13 West Virginia Mountaineers at #17 Texas Longhorns2:30 PM CT (3:30 ET)Darrell K.

Around the NFC North, we have four different games to choose from. Two of them could very well be shoot outs and are must-watch games this weekend. We’re taking a heavy look at some defenses this week because there are some solid ones in these matchups. In another heavy bye week, let’s take a look at who to sit and start in Week 8:Seahawks @ LionsStart: Seattle Defense; Kerryon Johnson, RBI hate to sound like a hater because this is a Packers blog, it’s just that the Seahawks have been sneaky good on defense recently! They’re the fourth overall DVOA on defense while being 3rd against the pass. Be comfortable starting Kerryon Johnson because that might be the best way the Lions move the ball on the day. Johnson had an explosive game against the Dolphins in Week 7, running the ball 19 times for 158 yards. He’ll need to find the end zone from more than 10 yards out, though, because LeGarrette Blount continually vultures those goal line touchdowns. Sit: Matthew Stafford Cheap Customized Green Bay Packers Jerseys , QBNot much of a streaming option here. Per ESPN, he’s the 18th ranked fantasy quarterback, but the Seattle secondary has some playmakers that might make Stafford struggle. Seattle is middle-of-the-pack in terms of sacks (16), but they have nine picks and six forced fumbles. I’d hit the waiver wire.Jets @ BearsStart: Taylor Gabriel, WRWith Allen Robinson II currently listed as doubtful, this is a good start even if Robinson manages to get on the field. Being neutralized by New England shouldn’t scare you and I think Gabriel bounces back against the Jets. With an impressive 79 percent catch rate, Gabriel should get back to snagging some underneath routes. Trubisky really struggled to get things going down the field last week, but hopefully that connection comes back. During Gabriel’s best game in Week 4, he was used as a red zone option, which I’d like to see the Bears go to again.Sit: Jordan Howard, RBI’m not sure what the Bears are doing with Howard here. Tarik Cohen is great. He’s fast, he’s a weapon and you have to get him the ball. But Howard is a good running back, too! They haven’t been able to spring him open and continually run him into the back of the offensive line for short gains. At this point, he’s extremely dependent on scoring touchdowns so use caution with him this week. Saints @ VikingsStart: Latavius Murray, RBMurray has enjoyed a nice couple of weeks with the absence of Dalvin Cook. However, his ceiling is limited to whether or not Cook can go. If Cook sits, Murray is a great option. Murray has enjoyed some pretty enticing matchups against the Cardinals and Jets. Now , the 6’3” back gets a tasty matchup against the Saints, who are ranked 29th in receiving DVOA against running backs. The Saints have been stout against the ground game, but they’re allowing 43.6 yards per game through the air to running backs.Sit: Vikings DefenseThe Vikings have been excellent as a fantasy defense over the past three weeks. They’ve scored 13, 17 and 16 points against the Eagles, Cardinals and Jets, respectively. But the Saints offense isn’t going to be as terrible as those offenses have looked. The last time the Vikings faced a high-powered offense (the Rams) the Vikings went negative in fantasy points. The Rams rank third in points per game; the Saints rank 2nd. Packers @ RamsStart: Geronimo AllisonSimilar to the Vikings, you pretty much start all the regular stalwarts (Rodgers, Adams, Graham), but keep your eyes peeled for injury reports on Sunday morning for this one. Allison is reportedly on pace to play, but as we saw with Melvin Gordon last week, travel can have an effect on status. Before Allison got injured, three out of his four games played were double-digit performances. He’s likely a streaming option for a low-end flex coming off an injury, but I think Aaron Rodgers will be happy to get him back. Since the Rams are without Aqib Talib, Allison could see some opportunities.
