LSU and Alabama may be bitter rivals on the football field, but LSU head coach Ed Orgeron says his counterpart on the other sideline, Nick Saban, is the standard by which all others are measured.

"Alabama's always been the benchmark," Orgeron said during the weekly SEC coaches conference call. And Coach O said it starts with Alabama coach Nick Saban.

"He's going to go down as the greatest college football coach in the history of the game," Orgeron said. "So give him the credit, what they've done at Alabama."

LSU is off this Saturday. The Fighting Tigers will host the Crimson Tide Saturday night in Death Valley, November 3, as they look to end a losing streak to Alabama that dates back to 2012.
