TigerBait Review: Week 8

New, 38 comments

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

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

TCU (3-4, 1-3 Big 12)

Hey look! We're not the only fan base frustrated and angry with their established, successful coach and program! Fell to Oklahoma State, 24-10.

UAB (2-4, 2-1 CUSA)

Open week. Taking stock of the Blazers at the midpoint of a season marred by injuries and a defensive coordinator change.

Kent State (2-6, 1-3 MAC)

Looking more and more like the Golden Flashes will miss a bowl, as South Alabama handed them their sixth loss of the season, 38-21. Dri Archer did score two touchdowns and put up 199 yards of total offense. Here were the highlight-worthy plays.

Auburn (6-1, 3-1)

The Other Tigers pulled one of the weekend's big upsets over Texas A&M, 45-41. Auburn put up more than 600 yards of total offense, and Nick Marshall earned SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors for his 300-plus yard, four-touchdown day.

Georgia (4-3, 3-2)

It's really looking like Georgia had their only real derp-free game against LSU. They fell to Vanderbilt, 31-27, in a game that featured an...um...questionable targeting call, and another special teams miscue.

Mississippi State (3-3, 0-2)

Open week for State, who opens as a 10-point favorite over the visiting Wildcats this week.

Florida (4-3, 3-2)

Missouri took the fight to the Gators and swamped them away from the swamp, 36-17. Florida's woeful offense put up just 151 yards of offense, which Alligator Army is blaming largely on the offensive line.

Ole Miss (4-3, 2-3)

Yeah. They celebrating. They earned it.

Furman (3-4, 2-2 FCS Southern Conference)

The Purple Paladins picked up their third win of the season over Appalachian State, 27-10.

Alabama (7-0, 4-0)

Alabama certainly appears to be improving, and they absolutely waxed Arkansas, 52-0 behind 353 rushing yards. Things are cleaning up.

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

Johnny Manziel put up 500 yards of offense and scored five combined touchdowns, but it wasn't enough, as Auburn rushed for nearly 400 yards and held the ball for more than 30 minutes. Good Bull Hunting is still seeking some patience with defensive coordinator Mark Snyder, though.

Arkansas (3-5, 0-4)

Swept away by the Tide. Open date for the Piggies, who need to dust themselves off for a visit from Auburn in two weeks.

Collective Record: 46-37
