BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU wanted to be in Atlanta in the postseason, just not in this game.

The Tigers will play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Monday, the third time the Tigers will play in the Atlanta bowl game in Les Miles' eight seasons as head coach.

No. 8 LSU (10-2) came within a late touchdown by Alabama in a 21-17 loss from having had the chance to play in Atlanta for the SEC championship and possibly a trip to the national championship game. Instead, the Tigers will play in the league's No. 5 bowl (No. 6 when the almost inevitable second SEC team in the BCS is figured in), albeit in a good matchup against No. 14 Clemson (10-2).
