Tuscaloosa, Ala. (WHNT) - LSU has one of the better rushing defenses in the SEC.  They average allowing less than 100 yards per contest.

Though they stifled the top rushing offense in the league in Texas A&M, their next challenge is against the second-best, Alabama.

The Tide is led by starter Eddie Lacy, though TJ Yeldon has the most rushing yards on the team.  Some fans might be criticizing the Tide for calling too many run plays, especially draws up-the-middle.  But Saban says the playcalling has been good so far.
