Matisse has played at Tiger Stadium before, but second-year Christian Harris from Baton Rouge has not.

“We’re pretty excited,” Harris said on Saturday. “It’s a great opportunity, especially for the first time I can play at LSU Stadium. It’s really exciting. Of course, they got some good old food there. But yeah, we This week we’ll handle our business and try to get in and run. “

If you’re lucky enough to succeed in these games, there’s a third game in the SEC Championship, and perhaps even more, so how do we?

“This will be a big game for us at LSU,” Saban said on Saturday. “Always so. They have a lot of really good players-I don’t care what their record is. They have a lot of talent. I’ve been preparing before. I thought it was time. I don’t think this will be an unusual week for us. “
