TigerBait Review: Week 6

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

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

TCU (2-3, 0-2 Big 12)

The Frogs rallied and outscored Oklahoma 17-7 in the second half, but it wasn't enough to avoid a second Big 12 loss, 20-17. TCU's defense rallied, but the offense continues to struggle, and Frogs o'War is starting to demand that Gary Patterson take some responsibility for it.

UAB (1-4, 0-1 CUSA)

The Blazers allowed more than 500 yards of offense to Florida Atlantic in a 37-23 loss, marking the third time this season UAB has allowed 490 yards or more to an opponent. It's cost defensive coordinator Reggie Johnson his job.

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

Northern Illinois rallied with 17 consecutive points to give the Golden Flashes their second MAC loss, 38-24. It was a rematch of last year's MAC Championship Game, and featured its share of highlights.

Auburn (4-1, 2-1)

Huge home win over Ole Miss, 30-22. Nick Marshall passed for just 93 yards, but he ran for 140 and two touchdowns. Freshman defensive end Carl Lawson really showed out with six tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, including two sacks. College and Magnolia is pointing out that of the four big swing games on Auburn's schedule, the Tigers are currently 2-0. They'll pick up their fifth win of the season this week when Western Carolina comes to town.

Georgia (4-1, 3-0)

Mark Richt's club survived a furious Tennessee rally, 34-31 in overtime but it was a costly victory. The Bulldogs lost Keith Marshall and Justin Scott-Wesley for the year with torn ACLs, punter Collin Barber left the game with a concussion and receiver Michael Bennett is also day-to-day with a knee injury. What's more, an undefeated Missouri team coming off a 51-28 win over Vanderbilt is coming to Athens, something Dawgsports hopes the red & black fan base isn't overlooking.

Mississippi State (2-3, 0-2)

Over at For Whom the Cowbell Tolls, they are lamenting the inability of the Bulldogs to finish a game that seemed to be trending in their direction.

Florida (4-1, 3-0)

The Gators struggled for about a quarter before a Loucheiz Purifoy touchdown via interception return and a 51-yard touchdown catch from Solomon Patton broke things open for a 30-10 victory over Arkansas. Purifoy was awarded SEC Defensive Player of the Week for his night, which included four tackles, a sack, three pass break-ups and a forced fumble. Alligator Army, in a really cool feature, has some play cut-ups of both the offense and defense highlights.

Ole Miss (3-2, 1-2)

464 yards of offense wasn't enough for the Rebels, who were stunned on the plains by Auburn.

Furman (2-3, 1-1 FCS Southern Conference)

The Purple Paladins couldn't overcome four first-half touchdowns by Elon and fell, 28-25. Running back Hank McCloud scored a pair of touchdowns in the second half to try and rally the team.

Alabama (5-0, 2-0)

Dispatched their tomato can with extreme prejudice, 45-3. A.J. McCarron was surgical with a 15-16, four touchdown day. Roll Bama Roll is taking some midseason stock.

Texas A&M (4-1, 1-1)

Bye week, with a trip to Oxford coming up. You know, I might just be imagining things, but I don't think Good Bull Hunting is being totally on the up-and-up with this whole Friendship Week post.

Arkansas (3-3, 0-2)

Dropped a third game in a row after starting out 3-0 on the season. On the upside, the Hogs may avoid Jadeveon Clowney this week against South Carolina.

Collective Record: 36-26
