Tiger Bait Review: Week 8

New, 7 comments

Our weekly recap of how LSU’s 12 scheduled opponents fared the previous weekend.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Wisconsin (4-2, 1-1 in the Big 10)

Bye week for the Badgers.

Sam Houston State (3-4, 2-1 in the FCS Southland Conference)

Northwestern State scored 10 points in the final six minutes to pull out a 31-28 win over the Bearkats in Natchitoches.

ULM (3-3, 2-1 in the Sun Belt)

Much needed week off for a banged up Warhawks.

Mississippi State (6-0, 3-0)

Likewise, a week off for the Bulldogs, who will travel to Kentucky this week.

New Mexico State (2-6, 1-3 in the Sun Belt)

The Aggies rushed for 214 yards, but allowed 536 in a loss to Idaho in the Kibbie Dome.

Auburn (5-1, 2-1 in SEC play)

Bye week on the Plains, with College and Mag taking stock of the chaotic weekend.

Florida (3-3, 2-3)

Mizzouri scored 42 points with 119 yards of offense. I don't know that you can say more than Rece Davis did on College Football Final: in the last 10 years, teams that hold their opponent to 120 yards or less are 147-2. Both of the losses belong to Will Muschamp at Florida.

Alligator Army, unsurprisingly, is ready for this to end. Athletic Director Jeremy Foley remains non-committal.

Kentucky (5-2, 2-2)

A Sea of Blue is naturally wondering why they had to watch their team take such a step back after the fantastic start to the season. They also have a very detailed breakdown here from their own perspective.

Ole Miss (7-0, 4-0)

Seven sacks. Three interceptions. That's what Ole Miss' defense did to Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley while allowing ZERO rushing yards. Still, there are some small concerns developing about the offense.

Alabama (6-1, 3-1)

The Tide dropped a bomb on the Aggies, 59-0. Perfect in virtually every phase, scoring 45 points in the first half and rushing for 298 yards with another 302 passing.

Arkansas (3-4, 0-4)

Georgia made it 16 SEC losses in a row for the Razorbacks, as Arkansas fell 45-32. The Razorbacks were down 38-6 at the half and made a rally to make things respectable, but just couldn't handle Georgia's Nick Chubb, who rushed for 202 yards and two touchdowns. For Arkansas Fight, the season hasn't gone that far off course from what they expected, but November will be what tells the final tale.

Texas A&M (5-3, 2-3)

Blindsided. That would be the best way to describe the Aggies right now. I don't think they ever expected to be shut out under Kevin Sumlin, never mind 59-0. I wonder how the program answers these questions.

Tiger Bait Combined Record: 52-27
