Alabama football commentary: Clash with LSU awaits

T Is it possible to spend more than nine months preparing for one football game? It seems like it this week as No. 1-ranked Alabama gets closer to its Saturday showdown at No. 5 LSU.

Auburn's Chizik considering starting QB Wallace

Auburn coach Gene Chizik said freshman Jonathan Wallace is "in strong consideration" to start at quarterback against lowly New Mexico State.

Quotable:

“Game by game we’re slowly establishing our identity,” senior safety Robert Lester said. “I don’t think we’ve established it completely yet. These next couple games we can do so.”

He said the defense always starts hoping to take away the other team’s running game. Mississippi State’s LaDarius Perkins came into the game leading the SEC in rushing, averaging just over 103 yards per game. Perkins finished with 38 yards on 15 carries. It was the first game all season he hadn’t scored a rushing touchdown.

“Any team we play, if you can make them one-dimensional, you’ve pretty much got them where you want them,” Lester said. “Whenever they start putting the ball in the air, you’ve got a chance to get a turnover and make game-changing plays.”
