Pat Forde gives his take on the Game of the Year:

This one scored off the charts for drama, atmosphere and living up to the hype, but none of those was the most impressive aspect of the game. The ferocity from both teams sets it apart.

Forde also named Les Miles his mid-season Gambler of the Year.

Bruce Feldman tells us what we at AndTheValleyShook.com have known all along. Glenn Dorsey is the best player in the country.

The 6-foot-2, 299-pound senior is by far the best player on the best team in the country. Everything about the Tigers' defense starts up front with No. 72. Dorsey anchors a team that leads the nation in total defense despite playing three ranked teams. Longtime LSU staffer Sam Nader, who has worked at the school since the '70s, said Dorsey is hands down the best lineman the Tigers have had since he's been in Baton Rouge. Given some of the talent LSU has cranked out in the past decade alone, that's a big statement.

Ah, something to look forward to.

It should come as no surprise that Jacob Hester was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week. After a performance that will place him among the greats in LSU lore, it seems like Hester should have a nickname. Is "the Big Diesel" taken by any current/former Tiger athletes?

If you hadn't heard, LSU and Auburn will be televised by ESPN at 8 p.m. CT. Gee, another Saturday Night in Death Valley. Time to start preparing.

In case you haven't been paying attention, and judging by the attendance, you haven't, the LSU women's soccer team is ranked for the first time ever, and features the National Player of the Week in Michell Makasini.
