TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's reward for beating two ranked SEC West teams in September is an October lineup that seems to set a clear path to a showdown with No. 10 LSU.


The top-ranked Crimson Tide will almost certainly be double-digit favorites for every game before the next really big one. That starts with eight-touchdown underdog and winless Georgia State on Saturday.


Alabama coach Nick Saban insists there's no sure thing in college football and cites Akron's near-miss against Michigan. His message: "We respect every opponent that we play, regardless of their record."


LSU is the only ranked team remaining on the Tide's schedule. The four October opponents - Georgia State, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee - have a combined record of 7-11.


All four of those teams are led by new head coaches.
