The Alabama-LSU game will be back under the lights in Baton Rouge.
The Crimson Tide and Tigers will kick off at 6 p.m. on Nov. 5, the SEC announced Monday. The game will air on ESPN for a second straight year after spending more than a decade exclusively on CBS.
Both teams will enter coming off an open week this Saturday.
LSU (6-2, 4-2 SEC) will have some momentum after beating Florida on the road two weeks ago and No. 7 Ole Miss, 45-20 last Saturday in Tiger Stadium.
Alabama is 7-1 and 4-1 in the SEC coming off a 30-6 win over Mississippi State on Saturday.
The Crimson Tide have won five straight games in Baton Rouge after the Tigers won 24-21 in 2010, Saban’s only loss at LSU since returning as Alabama’s coach.
