With the college football world focused on Alabama and LSU this weekend, it only seemed appropriate that for this week’s Aaron Torres Sports Podcast I gave my old friend Alex Scarborough from ESPN’s Tide Nation a call.
Alex covers the team and has incredible insight on Nick Saban’s club as they get set to go to Death Valley this weekend.
On Wednesday he and I discussed the following topics:

- At 8-0, Alex isn’t surprised by the Crimson Tide’s undefeated record. But after losing so much talent to the NFL, is he surprised by how dominant they’ve been?
- Of course as dominant as the Tide have been, they have yet to face a challenge anywhere near as tough as what they’ll have Saturday night in Baton Rouge. At the same time, Alex also explains why this team enjoys playing on the road even more so than they do at home.
- Speaking of dominant, A.J. McCarron is playing his best football of the season. What is A.J. doing differently from last year, and is he ready for the toughest test of his career under the lights of Death Valley?
- What about Alabama’s defense? It’s no secret LSU plans on running the ball and running it often. What is Saban doing to prepare this team for the hard-nosed Tigers attack?
- Finally, what is Alex’s prediction for this game? What are a few keys that he’s focused on heading into Saturday?
Folks, college football fans have had their eyes on November 3 since way before the season started, and after the long wait, that date and the excitement that comes with it is here. Join Alex and myself as we break down the biggest storylines of what is undoubtedly the marquee game not just of this weekend, but the entire 2012 season.
Speaking of the interview, remember, you can access the podcast in any number of ways.
