Bama, LSU hoping 7 will be lucky number this time


Tide guard Chance Warmack said last year's team might have been missing the urgent mentality, and this group has it.

"I think we take that to heart," Warmack said. "It's a mentality that you have to have going in, that you have to score every time you're in the red zone."

Just in case it comes down to the kickers again:

LSU's Drew Alleman has made 12 of 17 field goals.

Alabama's Shelley is perfect on nine attempts, handling the short- and mid-range attempts. Foster has made three kicks in five attempts from 50-plus yards, and is 4 of 8 overall.

"I think both of those guys have improved," Saban said. "They've gotten better each year. Cade's a lot more confident, has more confidence in the technical aspect of what he needs to do to be successful and has had more consistency in his approach to being able to do that.

"Jeremy has always been pretty accurate and continues to be that way."

That accuracy might come in handy in Baton Rouge.
