Tiger Bait Review: Week 4

Wondered how LSU's opponents fared last week? You're in the right place.

McNeese State (3-0, 2-0 Southland)

This Week: Nicholls

The Cowboys put away Mississippi College 37-0 and resume Southland play, hosting 0-3 Nicholls, the conference resident punching bag. The Cowboys have a huge matchup with Southeastern next week, but can't get caught looking ahead to that.

Mississippi State (3-1, 1-1 SEC)

This Week: @ Texas A&M

It wasn't the prettiest game in the world, but Mississippi State beat Auburn 17-9 and turn their sights to Texas A&M. But there's something troubling going on in Starkvegas, Dak isn't running, only netting 23 rushing yards off of 16 rushes in the Bulldog's two SEC games. However, in the same two games Prescott has thrown for 605 yards (270 vs. Auburn and 335 vs. LSU). The offensive line has been a concern, yet Dak is still finding time to set back and make the throws. The issue is that Mississippi State's offense is built to rely on the run and when Dak isn't making plays with his legs, it's almost as if Mississippi State is overshifting the offense.

Auburn (2-2, 0-2 SEC)

This Week: San Jose State

College and Mag has the flight attendant reading the instructions to the oxygen masks, so Auburn is in full fledged nosedive territory.

Death Valley...where opponent's dreams come to die.

Syracuse (3-1, 1-0 SEC)

This Week: BYE

Valiant effort, but Fournette was just too much.

Eastern Michigan (1-3, 0-1 MAC)

This Week: LSU

Lost 58-36 to Army. Previously 0-3 Army, the same Army team that allowed 37 points to Fordham in week 1. There's going to blood this weekend, so much blood. More blood than if Tarantino directed a movie about a surgeon with Parkinson's.

South Carolina (2-2, 0-2 SEC)

This Week: @ Missouri

Got off the schneid with a 31-14 victory over hapless UCF and George O'Leary. Even better news for USCE is the fact that this now exists:

Florida (4-0, 2-0 SEC)

This Week: Ole Miss

The Gators defended their win streak over an SEC East for for the second week in a row, coming back to defeat Tennessee for the 11th straight year 28-27. Florida has now turned in the bare minimum work for a win in three straight weeks, and with #3 Ole Miss and Chad Kelly coming to town, the outlook for Florida is bleak. So what are Gators concerned about? A high school chant being taken away. I wonder what the Gators will think of our Oweio chant.

Western Kentucky (3-1, 0-0 C-USA)

This Week: Rice

The Hilltoppers dropped a cool 56 on The Miami University Of Ohio (OH). Western Kentucky is neck and neck with Memphis as the best group of 5 team. And this week they get to play food, which Baylor threw up a 70 spot on last week, so Big Red will be hankering to set a new high score. With each passing week, my fear of WKU being a trap game for LSU intensifies. DOES THIS LOOK LIKE THE FACE OF MERCY TO YOU?

Alabama (3-1, 0-1 SEC)

This Week: @ Georgia

Beat ULM 34-nil in a match that was technically a revenge game for Saban, which he has an excellent track record in. Good for you, Nick. You're now level against ULM.

Arkansas (1-3, 0-1 SEC)

This Week: @ Tennessee

HOOOOOOOOOOOO ARKANSAS. Hoo boy. Yeah. The folks at Arkansas Fight are about ready to pull the plug after the Razorbacks were not able to salt away Texas A&M, losing in OT 28-21. There's good news on the horizon for Arkansas though, they play equally snake bitten Tennessee this week, and well, somebody has to lost that game.

Ole Miss (4-0, 2-0)

This Week: @ Florida

Despite a hearty effort from Vanderbilt, Ole Miss dispatched the Commodores 27-16. The relatively poor show from Chad "Future NRA President" Kelly and the rest of the Rebel offense dragged the Ole Miss PPG number all the way down to 55. #TheDecline is real, guys.

Texas A&M (4-0, 1-0)

This Week: Mississippi State

Now that A&M's Week 1 Vulgar Display Of Defensive Dominance For The Better Good Of The Peoples Of College Station™ was proven to be a sham via Arizona State being bad and Arkansas' honorary B1G offense finding success against the Ags, things could get dicey if Mississippi State and Dak decide to open things up as mentioned above.
