Alabama has the week off, but that didn't deter Nick Saban from holding a press conference Tuesday night.

The Crimson Tide coach spoke to reporters for nearly 16 minutes, despite the fact that Alabama has its bye this week. During game weeks, Saban holds press conferences on both Mondays and Wednesdays.

Next week, Alabama hosts LSU (7-0, 4-0 SEC) -- currently ranked No. 4 in both the AP and coaches poll -- with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m. on CBS. The Crimson Tide (7-1, 4-1 SEC) sits at No. 7 in both polls this week.
