Alabama center Ross Pierschbacher said winning in a hostile environment like Tiger Stadium makes it that much sweeter.

Playoff Predictor had Clemson, Alabama, and Notre Dame as heavy favorites to make the playoff coming into Statement Saturday and each remains at the top. Next is Georgia and Michigan, who have a 45 and 42 percent chance to make the playoff respectively per Playoff Predictor.

Remember the first eight games of the season, when the Alabama defense didn't measure up to the standard set by Nick Saban's previous defenses? Me neither. LSU didn't gain 100 yards of total offense until the last minute of the 3rd quarter. Anyone think the Tigers can score three times in the 4th quarter? Me neither.

LSU trails Alabama and here's the problem: The Tigers last scored a touchdown against the Tide at Tiger Stadium with 2:07 left in the first quarter — in 2014. That's 153 game minutes, and one head coach, ago.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

The flubbed extra point after Alabama's first TD reminds me of the 2011 regular-season victory by LSU in Tuscaloosa, when missed field goals cost the Tide the game. Special teams have bedeviled Nick Saban's teams more than once.
