Comments

This is an early tuneup game for LSU. Ed Orgeron has really done well with the Tigers. Many analysts howled foul when he was named the head coach at LSU. They assumed because he failed at Ole Miss that he would also fail at LSU. Hasn’t happened. The thing Orgeron does well is keep his players fresh. He doesn’t run them in the ground. Orgeron substitutes a lot of the regular pads on practice time with film study time.

This is a game the Tigers should win handily.
