Tiger Bait Review: Week 1

Let's see what LSU's opponents, who all actually played games, did.

We all knew it would happen eventually, just not in week 1
We all knew it would happen eventually, just not in week 1

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


Mississippi State (1 -0, 0-0 SEC)

Won 34-16 over Southern Miss at the Rock, but the game was a lot closer than the score indicated. Dak Prescott was Dak Prescott, but the roster turnovers were as glaring an issues as everybody believed it would be.

Auburn (1-0, 0-0 SEC)

Despite a second half flurry from llvll, Auburn clung on to a 31-24 win in the Georgia Dome. But Jeremy Johnson struggggled, which I absolutely saw coming. But much like the guys at College and Mag, I think Johnson will eventually get it going and be a great fit in the Plainsman offense.

Syracuse (1-0, 0-0 ACC)

Blew out Rhode Island 47-0. Played nearly half of their Freshman signing class. And lost their starting QB for the entire year to an ACL tear. Because Syracuse football is never not on fire.

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

The Worst Team In College Football cemented their status as such by losing to Old Dominion 38-34. Get it? Cemented. Because of the gray field. It's funny.

South Carolina (1-0, 0-0 SEC)

Kicked off the FBS season against North Carolina in...whatever the hell Charlotte is calling their stadium. The Gamecocks won 17-13 in a terribly ugly game.

Florida (1-0, 0-0 SEC)

61-13 over New Mexico State. I strongly dislike Florida' scheduling habits and refuse to expound on this any further. 

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

Beat Vanderbilt 14-12 on Thursday night, which E V E R Y B O D Y saw coming.  Western Kentucky only put up 37 rushing yards though, which...yeah.

Alabama (1-0, 0-0 SEC)

Jake Coker ended up taking the snaps from under center against Sconnie, and he was more than the Bama game manger, slinging for 213 yards while Derrick Drake went a combined 224 yards off of 23 rushes.

Arkansas (1-0, 0-0 SEC)

Dropped UTEP 48-13, with Brandon Allen throwing for more than 300 yards. Yes, a BERT team passed for more than 300 yards. I'm as shocked as you are.

Ole Miss  (1-0, 0-0 SEC)

Hung 76 on Tennessee-Martin. All these SEC playing week 1 games against vastly inferior teams, amirite?

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

Ok, so I got that one wrong. A&M beat Arizona State 38-17, securing the first Fetty Score of the year:

Maybe A&M did grow a defense in an entire offseason, but I'll wait for the sample size to grow a touch. That will have to wait a few weeks, since the Ags have Ball State and Nevada in the next few weeks.
