Tiger Bait Review: Week Three

Back to our weekly recap of how LSU’s 12 scheduled opponents fared the previous weekend.

Stacy Revere

Wisconsin (1-1)

Open date, although the Badgers did move up in the polls thanks to some losses ahead of them.

Sam Houston State (1-3)

Took it on the chin in a brutal home loss to Colorado State-Pueblo, 47-21.

ULM (2-1, 1-0 in the Sun Belt)

Sounds like Todd Berry had a pretty good attitude at halftime Saturday night. After that, not so much.

Mississippi State (3-0)

State kept South Alabama out of the endzone in a 35-3 win and are just on the outskirts of the top 25. Still allowed some healthy passing yardage to the Jaguars, and For Whom the Cowbell Tolls thinks there are other things to clean up.

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

Passed for 335 yards but still fell on the road to UTEP.

Auburn (2-0, 1-0 in SEC play)

Open date, which it sounds like the College & Mag crowd handled productively.

Florida (2-0, 1-0)

The Gators managed to hold off Kentucky in three overtimes, a game that was not without controversy. Alligator Army is less than enthused, but not panicking...yet.

Kentucky (2-1, 0-1)

A Sea of Blue is handling the blown call better than I probably would. And of course, the biggest takeaway from the night is that there's no doubt that this team is improved.

Ole Miss (3-0, 1-0)

The Rebels did exactly what they should have done to a surprisingly bad ULL team, winning 56-14. The Ole Miss defense gave up some yards, but held up in the red zone. Curious to see if that can continue against better opponents.

Alabama (3-0)

Demolished Southern Miss in efficient fashion, 52-13. Amari Cooper continues to put up huge numbers. O.J. Howard, however, is still 0-for the season at tight end.

Arkansas (2-1, 0-1)

The Razorbacks won arguable the biggest game of the Bret Bielema Era to date, traveling out to Lubbock and throttling Texas Tech 49-28. Arkansas rushed for 438 yards and seven touchdowns. Progress.

Also, this block:

Texas A&M (3-0, 1-0)

Handled Rice 38-10 behind another 300 yards and four touchdowns from Kenny Hill. But the Owls actually out-gained the Aggies with 481 yards to 477, including 240 on the ground. Good Bull Hunting was a little disappointed over that part. Might want to look into that new field too, fellas.

Tiger Bait Combined Record: 26-8
