This year's Heisman Award is still up for grabs and two of the top candidates (Tua Tagovailoa and Joe Burrow) will face off on Saturday at Bryant Denny Stadium.

Former LSU QB Josh Booty thinks that Joe Burrow can separate himself from the pack with a road win in Tuscaloosa.

"This is the main stage," said Booty. "For Burrow... don't try to do too much, his numbers are unbelievable. I think he'll 100 percent be the front-runner if he's able to go to Tuscaloosa and beat them."

Booty also discusses how a win on the road over Alabama makes you an instant legend.

"LSU went to Texas on the road, was a top-10 win at the time, but there's nothing like having to go play on the road at Tuscaloosa," said Booty. "If you can go into Tuscaloosa and win you become a folk hero especially as a head coach or a quarterback. This would solidify Orgeron as the guy."
