TigerBait Review: Week 7

A weekly look back at the how LSU’s 13 scheduled opponents performed.

Kevin C. Cox

TCU (3-3, 1-2 Big 12)

LSU's season-opening opponent overcame five turnovers to pick up their first Big 12 win of the season over Kansas, 27-17. Frogs o'War is frustrated, but still hopeful that the team can rally through the rest of conference play, with some new defenders stepping up for injured starters.

UAB (2-4, 2-1 CUSA)

Picked up their first Conference USA win of the season over FIU, 27-24 on a 29-yard field goal by Ty Long with 10 seconds left in the game.

Kent State (2-5, 1-3 MAC)

Ball State threw a touchdown in the final two minutes to hand the Golden Flashes their third loss of the season, 27-24.

Auburn (5-1, 2-1)

The Plainsmen handled cupcake Western Carolina in...well, as impressive as you want to view it fashion I guess, 62-3. Freshman Jeremy Johnson got the start in place of an injured Nick Marshall and threw 4 touchdowns while completing 17-21 passes for 201 yards. Eight different Auburn players scored touchdowns. College and Magnolia was happy for the warm-up before Texas A&M comes to town.

Georgia (4-2, 3-1)

You could almost see it coming after such a pyrrhic victory over Tennessee last week. Georgia fell out of the national title hunt, and possibly the SEC East race as well as Missouri came to Sanford Stadium and beat the Dawgs, 41-26. Aaron Murray threw for three touchdowns and 290 yards, but his two interceptions were costly. Although Dawgsports are most definitely not blaming injuries for all of the coverage busts Georgia's defense had.

Mississippi State (3-3, 0-2)

Awesome Dak Prescott runs aside, Mississippi State had to sweat out Bowling Green and held on for a 21-20 win. The Fighting Falcons scored two touchdowns late to cut the score to one, and had the ball with 4 minutes left, but couldn't get within field goal range. For Whom the Cowbell Tolls laments CLANGA's inability to get out of its own way and put this game away.

Florida (4-2, 3-1)

LSU won the sequel matchup to last year's 14-6 win. Alligator Army is frustrated, but still hopeful that the Gators can control their destiny in the SEC East.

Ole Miss (3-3, 1-3)

Johnny Football's late-game heroics handed Ole Miss their third loss of the season, 41-38. Manziel led a 7-play, 56-yard drive to get Josh Lambo in position to kick a 33-yard, game-winning field goal. Red Cup Rebellion is questioning how Hugh Freeze handled the Rebels' last drive, a three-and-out in which Ole Miss threw three incomplete passes and punted to the Aggies with two and a half minutes left.

Furman (2-4, 1-2 FCS Southern Conference)

Furman fell to 1-2 in the Southern Conference with a 31-9 loss to Chattanooga. The Paladins gained just 189 yards of offense and were 2-14 on third down.

Alabama (6-0, 3-0)

The Tide had 668 yards of offense (666 would have been a little too stereotypical, I guess) in a 48-7 win over Kentucky. The game was tight for a quarter or so before Bama's superior talent overwhelmed the hapless Wildcats, but Roll Bama Roll is resisting the idea that the start was really that sluggish.

Texas A&M (5-1, 2-1)

Good Bull Hunting is encouraging Aggie fans to cherish the moment with regards to Senor Football. Johnny Manziel had more than 450 yards of total offense on the night.

Arkansas (3-4, 0-3)

The Razorbacks went up 7-0, only to have South Carolina completely stomp a mud hole in Arkansas and hand them their fourth straight loss, 52-7. Carolina racked up 537 yards of offense. Arkansas Fight is wondering if maybe it's time to start looking forward to basketball season.

Collective Record: 42-32
