Tiger Bait Review: Week 12

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

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Wisconsin (8-2, 5-1 in the Big 10)

Um...yeah...maybe you heard. Melvin Gordon rushed for 408 yards -- a new FBS record -- in just twenty-five carries in a 59-24 win over Nebraska. How about a closer look at some of the more dominant plays via SB Nation video?

Sam Houston State (7-4, 6-1 in the FCS Southland Conference)

Eight-hundred and twenty-three. That's how many yards the Bearkats put up on Houston Baptist in a 76-0 blowout. 823. 601 yards on the ground.

ULM (3-7, 2-4 in the Sun Belt)

The Warhawks scored in the final two minutes to make it tight, but fell to that other UL school in the state, 34-27. Pete Thomas passed for 472 yards, but it wasn't quite enough.

Mississippi State (9-1, 5-1)

Just a brutal way for that magical season to come crashing down. The West isn't out of the picture for State, but they're going to need Auburn to do them a solid in the ARN Bowl after losing to Alabama, 25-20. Dan Mullen seemed to pull his offense into a shell a bit, and made some...questionable decisions late as the Bulldogs rallied.

New Mexico State (2-8, 1-5 in the Sun Belt)

Bye week for the first Aggies.

Auburn (7-3, 4-3 in SEC play)

They got blow'd out. Geogia hammered Auburn for 289 rushing yards in a 34-7 win in Sanford Stadium on Saturday. Nick Chubb and Todd Gurley each rushed for more than 130 yards, although Gurley blew his ACL in a particularly tragic injury.

College and Magnolia finds itself wondering how a Gus Malzahn offense could look so dysfunctional.

Florida (5-4, 4-4)

Firing, resignation, whatever, the axe finally, mercifully, fell on Florida head coach Will Muschamp following a 23-20 loss to South Carolina in overtime. The Gators held a seven-point lead in the final minute, but a blocked punt gave the Gamecocks a chance to tie things up and put it in the extra frame.

Alligator Army is sifting through the wreckage and trying to figure out the next move. For a top-flight job, there don't seem to be a ton of obvious slam-dunk hires for Florida.

Kentucky (5-6, 2-6)

Tennessee took one more step towards bowl eligibility at Kentucky's expense, as Josh Dobbs put up another 300-plus total offense day in a 50-16 romp. A Sea of Blue has a depressing numbers game on the Wildcats' collapse after a fantastic start. Kentucky will have to beat rival Louisville in two weeks to try and secure a bowl bid.

Ole Miss (8-2, 4-2)

Bye week for the Rebels.

Alabama (9-1, 6-1)

Tide takes down No. 1, as Alabama crushes Mississippi State's hopes, 25-20. It wasn't a flashy game for Blake Sims, but he came through in the clutch again with a huge drive to put Bama's final touchdown on the board, including a couple of big third-down scrambles.

Arkansas (5-5, 1-5)

Martrell Spaight and Dan Skipper earned SEC Player of the Week honors for the Razorbacks' big win. Arkansas Fight finally feels like it can move on a bit into the real stage of the BERT Era.

Texas A&M (7-4, 3-4)

Missouri road a 28-point third quarter to a 34-27 win, with 335 rushing yards. Much like us, GBH is hoping to regroup over the open date and get ready for next Thursday.

Tiger Bait Combined Record: 76-44
