TigerBait Review: Week Nine

New, 7 comments

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

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

TCU (3-5, 1-4 Big 12)

Rough day in Forth Worth, as Texas beats up on the Horned Frogs, 30-7. The Longhorns held TCU under 250 yards of offense. Casey Pachall made his big return but threw for just 139 yards and a pick. The bros at Frogs o'War are bemoaning the same ol' same ol'.

UAB (2-5, 1-2 CUSA)

The Blazers dropped to 2-5 on the year, losing to UT-San Antonio in the Alamodome, 52-31.

Kent State (2-7, 1-4 MAC)

No bowl game for the Golden Flashes, after their seventh loss of the season to Buffalo, 41-21.

Auburn (7-1, 3-1)

Rushed for more than 400 yards in a 45-10 waxing of Florida Atlantic. Incredibly balanced day for the Auburn offense, with four players going over 60 yards on the ground. And now we get ready for the Malzahn-BERT showdown we've all been waiting for since Birmingham.

Georgia (4-3, 3-2)

Open week for the Bulldogs, now preparing for the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party (damn right I'm still calling it that).

Mississippi State (3-3, 1-2)

Picked up the first win in SEC play last Thursday, 28-22 over Kentucky. It was a needed win for Dan Mullen, who has five games left to show some progress. Although at South Carolina, at Texas A&M, Alabama, at Arkansas and Ole Miss is definitely a tough row to hoe.

Florida (4-3, 3-2)

Open date for the Gators as well, and Alligator Army is talking SEC East scenarios as we hit November.

Ole Miss (5-3, 2-3)

Thrashed Idaho, 59-14 behind a combined 22/29 passing for 280 yards and four touchdowns from Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti. Sounds like the handful of Idahoans (sp?) that made the trip enjoyed it.

Furman (3-5, 2-2 FCS Southern Conference)

Took their paycheck and were worn down by the Tigers.

Alabama (8-0, 5-0)

The Crimson Tide jumped out to a 35-0 lead and coasted to a 45-10 win in the SEC's MOST IMPORTANT RIVALRY EVER over Tennessee. A.J. McCarron completed 19/27 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns. Unsurprisingly, there really isn't much for Roll Bama Roll to complain about.

Texas A&M (6-2, 3-2)

What shoulder injury? Johnny Manziel completed 25/35 passes for 305 yards and four touchdowns as the Aggs pounded Vanderbilt, 56-24. It was a day of big numbers for A&M, even some of the small ones.

Arkansas (3-5, 0-4)

Open week for the Pigs, though they did still manage to lose a recruit's commitment, which they are not...um...handling well.

Collective Record: 51-41
