Tiger Bait Review: Week 13

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

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Wisconsin (9-2, 6-1 in the Big 10)

It took another 200-plus yard day from Melvin Gordon, but the Badgers picked up their sixth Big 10 win and put themselves in position to take on Ohio State in the championship game if they can win Paul Bunyan's Ax next week against Minnesota.

In related news, Oklahoma's Samaje Perine didn't even give Gordon's single-game rushing record a week, running for 427 yards as Oklahoma squashed Kansas. Imagine just letting your best back tote the mail like that for one game, right?

Sam Houston State (8-4, 7-1 in the FCS Southland Conference)

The Bearkats picked up another conference win in a 38-31 shootout win over Central Arkansas on Saturday, tying them with Southeastern Louisiana for the Southland Conference lead.

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

The Warhawks rallied for 13 points to turn a 17-17 tie into a 30-17 win over New Mexico State, breaking their six-game losing streak.

Mississippi State (10-1, 6-1)

The No. 4 Bulldogs bounced back in a big way with a 51-0 rout of Vandy. Dak Prescott totaled four touchdowns on Senior Day. Although allegedly, Dan Mullen had some choice words for the officials perhaps?

New Mexico State (2-9, 1-6 in the Sun Belt)

ULM may have snapped their streak, but the First Aggies' now haven't tasted victory in nine games.

Auburn (8-3, 4-3 in SEC play)

Bit of a lackluster effort by Auburn by Gus Malzahn standards, handling Samford 31-7 on Senior Day. College and Mag was pleased that at least the seniors showed up to be counted.

Florida (6-4, 4-4)

The Gators picked up bowl eligibility with 300-plus passing -- yes, passing -- yards in a 52-3 pasting of Eastern Kentucky. Jeff Driskel passed for three touchdowns and rushed for another in his final game in the Swamp.

Kentucky (5-6, 2-6)

Bye week for Kentucky before their final shot at bowl eligibility against Louisville on Rivalry Weekend.

Ole Miss (8-3, 4-3)

The Rebels did LSU one better in getting embarrassed even worse by the Hogs, 30-0.

Alabama (10-1, 6-1)

The Tide struggled for about a quarter before rolling up 600-plus yards of offense in a 48-14 win over Western Carolina. The effort was a bit uninspired, and a number of key players went down with injuries, but nothing has really changed for the Tide. Win the Iron Bowl, win the division.

Arkansas (6-5, 2-5)

A second straight shut-out has the Mothership wondering if BERT's program is turning a corner. Arkansas Fight feels affirmed that things are progressing for the second-year coach. What's more, the win assures every single team in the SEC West of bowl eligibility.

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

Bye week for the Aggies, although they've still had a good bit to talk about in Texas.

Tiger Bait Combined Record: 84-46
