FOX Sports lead college football analyst Joel Klatt is one of the best at what he does.
Besides being on the call for FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff game of the week, he also hosts his popular “Joel Klatt Show” during the week.
In a recent episode, he predicted a major upset this week that would surely shake up the college football landscape.
First place in the SEC West will be up for grabs this coming Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, as the #8 Alabama Crimson Tide hos the rival #13 LSU Tigers in a highly anticipated showdown.
Klatt expressed his confidence in Brian Kelly’s Tigers, citing their recent victory over the Crimson Tide in Baton Rouge last year.
He emphasized his belief in LSU’s offensive firepower and Alabama’s inability to keep up on the scoreboard.
He highlighted the exceptional play of Heisman-contending quarterback Jayden Daniels, who leads an offense which tops the nation in points per game (47.4).
“I think LSU wins. I just don’t know if Bama has the offensive firepower to keep up,” Klatt said. “If you tell me that Bama can hold LSU to under 32 points, then Bama’s got a chance.”
“I just don’t know if they can do that … Maybe they can.”

Okay, it may not be a MAJOR upset if LSU wins – but it would still be a significant upset that would surely rattle the rankings.
Who do you think will win???
