TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

If it's possible, Crimson Tide Head Coach Nick Saban was even more serious than usual in speaking about the team's upcoming match against LSU.

He stressed the need for each and every team member to bear down and focus on their fundamentals in order to execute at the level they need to against the LSU Tigers.

"This time of the year...when we didn't do things as well as we would like, it came back to a lot of the fundamentals that are pretty basic," Saban said. "I don't think things like that can go unnoticed at this time of the year."

Add to that pressure the fact that this weekend match up will be in Baton Rouge. LSU has a 6-0 home record this year.

"[LSU] is great team we're playing and a great program. I think that the most important thing for us to do is to focus on preparing for play our best football," Saban said. "[That's] always what's important when you play good teams."

The Alabama-LSU game will kick off at 7 p.m. CST on CBS.
