BATON ROUGE, La. -- With LSU going through its bye week, updating the LSU 10 isn't necessary. So we altered it, looking at 10 players who need to have big games for LSU to beat Alabama.

1. QB Zach Mettenberger: LSU's deep stable of running backs gives LSU an offensive threat, but for the Tigers to have any chance at putting up points against the nation's best defense, Mettenberger, 12th in the SEC in pass efficiency, is going to have to be better than he's been this season.

2. DT: Bennie Logan: There will be a lot of discussion of quarterbacks and skill players, but any LSU-Alabama game will be won in the trenches. Logan and the LSU defensive line will have their toughest test of the season and need to step up.
