It appears that the matchup between LSU and Alabama doesn’t only determine who wins the SEC West but also who becomes the leader of the free world.

Since 1984, the winner of this game during election years has directly correlated with the party affiliation of the winner of the presidential election, with LSU connected to the GOP and Alabama connected to the Democratic party.

This is probably just a coincidence, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama to pull for the Crimson Tide and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to cheer on the Tigers come Saturday.
