Tiger Bait Preview: Week 2


A look at what the opposition is facing this week

North Texas (0-1) v Texas Southern (1-0) 6pm []

The Mean Green look to restart their season against a decent, but should be out-matched FCS squad. "Mean Joe" Green will be the honorary captain.

Idaho (0-1) @ Bowling Green (0-1) 6pm []

In a revenge match of one of the greatest non-LSU bowl games I've ever seen, Idaho is just looking to be competent on offense with their planned starting QB running the show instead of a backup. If you're looking for a reason to watch this game and make comparisons, Bowling Green had a competitive 27-14 loss to Florida last week.

Auburn (0-1) @ Mississippi State (1-0) 11am ESPN

In the first of a JP TIMESLOT DOUBLEHEADER weekend for the SEC, Dan Mullen tries to prove to the world that he can finally beat a division team not named Ole Miss. Tons of great coverage from our neighbors at For Whom The Cowbell Tolls and College and Magnolia, but the best single piece is C&M's French Poetic Realism Cinema of life in Starkvegas.

Towson (0-1) v BYE STATE

A Week 2 bye? Maybe they'll spend time working on punt returns.

Florida (1-0) @ Texas A&M (0-0) 2:30pm ESPN

Gameday is in town for the Aggie's SEC opener and after Florida's lackluster opener, I think this might be a toss up. Alligator Army is confident they'll knock the rust off while Good Bull Hunting has some of the best content I've ever seen for a blog that is barely a week old, and that's not even counting CuppyCup giving LSUFreek a run for his money.

South Carolina (1-0) v East Carolina (1-0) 11:21 Jefferson Pilot

Connor Shaw is supposedly healed but he has missed a bunch of practice. The Gamecocks ain't worried, even if they do believe ECU has a better offense than Vandy.

Alabama (1-0) v Western Kentucky 2:30pm Jefferson Pilot

Roll Bama Roll - Tide Looks to Avoid Letdown Against Western Kentucky


Ole Miss (1-0) v UTEP (0-1) 6pm FSN

Can Mike Price's Miners, fresh off a near upset of Oklahoma, get a road win against an SEC team? Well, it is Ole Miss...

Arkansas (1-0) v ULM (0-0) (Little Rock) 6pm ESPNU

The Expats dont trust the 30+ line at all and want to see some improvement from their defense that gave up 322 yds last week.
