The Alabama-LSU Rule [View all]

There are many prognosticators of who will win the 2012 Presidential Election such as the Halloween Masks, the Redskins Rule, the Lakers Law, and the World Series Winner. However, one of the lesser known sports prognosticators happens to be the Alabama-LSU Rule. The rule states that if Alabama wins the matchup between the two rivals, a Democrat will win the race for the White House. If LSU wins, a Republican will win.

So, what is the track record of this rule? Let's take a look.

1984: LSU 16, Alabama 14. Ronald Reagan (R) demolishes Walter Mondale (D).

1988: LSU 19, Alabama 18. George H.W. Bush (R) defeats Michael Dukakis (D).

1992: Alabama 31, LSU 11. Bill Clinton (D) defeats George H.W. Bush (R).

1996: Alabama 26, LSU 0. Clinton (D) defeats Bob Dole (R).

2000: LSU 30, Alabama 28. George W. Bush (R) defeats Al Gore (D).

2004: LSU 26, Alabama 10. George W. Bush (R) defeats John Kerry (D).

2008: Alabama 27, LSU 21. Barack Obama (D) defeats John McCain (R).


Tonight, LSU and Alabama faced off once again. The result Alabama 21, LSU 17.

This means that President Obama will win re-election on Tuesday.
