Comments

This is one of the top college games for this weekend, along with the A&M-Clemson matchup. We don’t know how good LSU is. They destroyed Georgia Southern last week. We’ll have a better grasp on how good the Tigers are after this game. The thing that is really scary about LSU’s win over GSU is that Georgia Southern won 10 games last season and has 14 position starters back. The Eagles gained 98 yards on the Tiger defense. Texas, by contrast, scored a boatload of points, like LSU, but allowed the Techsters over 400 yards of offense. I’m going with the Tigers for this one.
