In 1964, Alabama and LSU met in Birmingham, Alabama as undefeated teams vying for the conference championship and, with a little luck, the national title. It proved to be a titanic battle with almost mythical overtones. Over at the SB Nation mothership, The Historical takes a look at this matchup which followed a six-year break in the series between the two storied programs. The game prior, in 1958, was notable as the first for Paul W. Bryant as head coach of Alabama and the debut of LSU's famed "Chinese Bandits" defense. The Historical examined this game last November. Interestingly, the 1958 contest was held at Mobile's Ladd Stadium, marking the last time the teams met at a neutral site prior to tonight's BCS National Championship Game.
