SEC competition is done for the year as far as the football field is concerned, but now it's time for things to get interesting.

A year ago, a flurry of activity that preceded the Tigers' national title game tilt with Alabama. In between Tyrann Mathieu's trip to the Heisman Trophy ceremony and LSU's eventual national title game loss, there came plenty of news on the recruiting front. The highlight of that was easily ESPN 150 safety Landon Collins' commitment to Alabama at the 2012 Under Armour All-America Game -- a controversial decision in favor of the Crimson Tide.

LSU and Alabama won’t meet on the field until next fall, but the rivalry will stay intense as both programs turn their attention to the remaining pieces of the 2012 recruiting effort.
