    While big names such as Minkah, Calvin, Da’Ron and Rashaan will dominate the headlines on Thursday, I hope you keep an eye on the underdogs - you know, the athletes who may be an afterthought to some but will soon land on an NFL roster.

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

In a rematch of last year's BCS National Championship game Alabama will travel to Baton Rouge, La. this Saturday to take on LSU. The Tigers currently hold a 22-game win streak for games played at Death Valley and a big part of that record is because of the passionate LSU fans that fill up Tiger Stadium on gameday.

"They get in your head," senior defensive back Robert Lester said. "The fans let you know if you mess up. The crowd is super loud. They can really throw you off in your game. The first time I played at LSU I was very nervous. The younger guys might want to crawl into a shell, but I won't let that happen."

Both Alabama and LSU fans hyped up the 2011 regular season game between the two schools in Tuscaloosa. The game ended with a 6-9 overtime loss to LSU--the Tide's only loss of the season.

"If there was anything I could say about last year's game it's that there is such a thing as being too amped up for a game," said head coach Nick Saban.

While some LSU's homefield is a place many fear, others are excited for the challenge.

"The fans are crazy," said wide reciever Kevin Norwood. "All the hooting and hollering and the noise they make. I'm ready to just go there and have fun. Soak it all in and see the atmosphere."

The Tide is 2-3 at Tiger Stadium in the past decade, but Saturday they have a chance to prove to fans on both sides of the ball that they have what it takes to beat the Tigers. The game kicks off at 7pm Saturday.
