TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - LSU is seeking redemption from the last colossal clash with fellow SEC West power Alabama.
Defensive tackle Bennie Logan says the fifth-ranked Tigers will host No. 1 Alabama Saturday night trying to ``show the world that we have bounced back'' from the loss in the national championship game.
Logan says that defeat left ``a lot of scars.''
Alabama has some motivation of its own beyond remaining the national and Southeastern Conference front-runner.
Crimson Tide wide receiver Kevin Norwood notes that LSU won the league title last season after surviving for a 9-6 overtime win in Tuscaloosa. He gripes that ``we're just the national championship team.''
This game doesn't feature 1 versus 2 like last season's two meetings but both teams are still squarely in the BCS title hunt.
