Central Michigan vs. LSU Football Series History

First meeting

Comments

LSU definitely doesn’t look any better than it was in the 2020 season. Maybe the Tigers are worse. Ed Orgeron’s team can’t afford to take Central Michigan lightly. They gave Missouri a tough fight, yes, the Missouri guys who beat LSU last season in Columbia. I think LSU wins but they might not.
