A look at how LSU's scheduled opponents fared in the last week.
The Mean Green take the field tonight at home against UL-L, giving us all a Tuesday night football treat on ESPN2.
Rough weekend for Idaho, taking a 38-7 loss at Texas State. The Vandals allowed 519 yards of offense to the Bobcats, including 337 rushing yards.
This season is setting up for Auburn to have their worst record in the last 60 years. Does anything more need to be said?
The FBS Tigers get back on the winning track with a 24-19 win over Maine. It was quarterback Grant Enders' game, with 358 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns.
Tight win for Florida at Vanderbilt, but Jeff Driskell managed to steal with show and break Tim Tebow's single-game Florida QB rushing mark, but Spencer Hall is still happy that the Gator's sloppy effort wasn't enough to cost them a victory. Meanwhile, the news that the Gators are No. 2 in the initial rankings draws "cautious optimism" from Will Muschamp.
Garnett and Black Attack are proud that their team never gave up on Saturday, but, not surprisingly, see a whole lot more bad than good in this close loss. In an interesting note, apparently Jadeveon Clowney supplied LSU with a bit of motivation during warm-ups.
Obviously, the most important thing regarding our Aggy SBNation brethren over at Good Bull Hunting is that they are hosting the greatest GIF duel of our time between LSUFreek and Cuppycup. You're your friends y'all, we CAN'T let Freek down here. Meanwhile, the team is just happy to have escaped Shreveport with their dignity intact after Louisiana Tech pushed A&M to the limit.
Another week, another trouncing of a completely overmatched opponent by the Tide.
Dan Mullen's crew wins a game that felt like a big test against a Tennessee team that, despite its struggles, has its share of dangerous playmakers, like CorDarrelle Patterson (seriously WHY could he have come here?). For the folks at For Whom the Cowbell Tolls, it felt like the kind of game the Bulldogs have typically loss in recent seasons, and I, for one, remember what that could feel like.
In perhaps the surest sign of progress (or madness...the two can be so related), the Rebels are thrilled with their first SEC win since 2010, yet still somewhat unsatisfied with how things played out.
The Razorbacks are at least putting a buffer between themselves and the absolute bottom of the league with a win over Kentucky. In fact, this was pretty much what Arkansas expected their team to look like this season. Their perspective coaching search wish list still has Charlie Strong at the top of it, but a familiar face is starting to creep back in...
