It might be June, but it's never too early to start talking about the LSU-Alabama game on November 3. At least that's what some players from both teams believe as they engaged in a Twitter war of words Monday as a preview of the hard feelings that exist between these two teams following the BCS national championship game.

LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu (@TM7_Era) unintentionally started the conversation by tweeting: "try throwing a corner route or a cross country on me this year!!! i'll be waiting!!"

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron (@10AJMcCarron) saw the tweet and fired back: "U can talk ab stopping something.. But actions speak louder than words. Remember that. #neworleans #14"

And we were off:

Mathieu: "@10AJMcCarron you have 1,THE school has 14! you play your part well thanks to great coaching! but anyways we'll talk nov 3rd!"

McCarron: "@TM7_Era Ur right the TEAM.. That's how we play as a TEAM.. We stick together through our losses and wins. #thatswhatmakesusgreat #wehave14"

McCarron then got Alabama wide receiver Kenny Bell involved.

"@TheKennyBell7 I guess we will have to match up the real 7 with theirs. I'm taking our number all day"

Mathieu: "highly favored in DEATH VALLEY!"

McCarron: "Bama fans don't talk anymore ab it. Let's just sit back quietly and wait our turn. Y'all know the date. It's comin. #november3rd #bamanation"

Kenny Bell: "s/0 honey badger for getting me amp bout da season #turnup"

Who says LSU doesn't have a real rival?
