BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Connor Neighbors could've followed his grandfather, his father, his brother. That's what everyone expected. That would've been the comfortable thing to do.
Instead, Neighbors wanted to leave his own mark.
So, a family that is firmly associated with Alabama will have split loyalties when the top-ranked Crimson Tide meets No. 5 LSU in Baton Rouge on Saturday night.
Neighbors plays fullback for the Tigers, which seems more than a little strange considering where he came from. His grandfather Billy was one of Alabama's greatest players, standing out on Bryant's first national championship team and a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. His father Wes starred for the Tide in the 1980s. His older brother Wesley also played for Alabama and now works on coach Nick Saban's staff.
