Music City Bowl tickets start for less than $30

The LSU Tigers have survived the brutal SEC Conference this season, ending the year with an 8-4 record. They will play one more game this year, meeting the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Music City Bowl. The Irish enter 7-5 and have a very talented offense, led by quarterback Everett Golson, so LSU’s defense will be put to the test. The Tigers began the year impressively, winning...

LSU tickets vs Alabama 189% above season average

The Alabama Crimson Tide (7-1), who ranked No. 6 in the most recent AP Poll, will seek their fourth straight SEC victory when they travel to Death Valley to take on the LSU Tigers (7-2), who ranked No. 19. A win by Alabama will move them one step closer to the SEC Championship Game and perhaps the College Football Playoff. Two weeks ago, Alabama defeated the Tennessee Volunteers...

LSU football tickets vs Kentucky are least expensive of season

The LSU Tigers (5-2) will look for their second SEC victory when they host the upstart Kentucky Wildcats (5-1). LSU is coming off an emotional, last second 30-27 road win over the Florida Gators.

A Day After: LSU vs. Sam Houston State

Against an overmatched FCS opponent, you expect perfection. That’s basically what LSU gave us tonight in all phases. — Cameron Roberson (@LSUbeat) September 7, 2014 A no-doubter. This was a game that LSU came out and did exactly what they wanted to do, but few actually expected them to do. LSU came out and hung 50+ points and nearly 600 yards of offense on an overmatched (but...

Examining LSU’s Historic Non-Conference Streak

On September 7, 2002, LSU defeated The Citadel 35-10 in Tiger Stadium. That game may sound like nothing more than boring, lower-level schedule filler at first, but the victory was the first of 46 in a row (and counting) against non-conference opponents in regular season games (a number they reached in spectacular fashion just a few days ago against Wisconsin) for the Tigers. Just...

A Day After: LSU vs. Wisconsin

You never quite know what you’ll get in the first game of the season. For LSU and Les Miles, it’s always been a mixed bag to start. Even in the 2011 blow out of Oregon, Jarrett Lee passed for under 150 yards and barely completed 50% of his passes. The game Saturday was no different. It was quite literally a tale of two halves. In the first, LSU’s offense was lifeless. The Wisconsin...

Saturday Slant: LSU vs. Wisconsin

Once again LSU will play a power conference team in week one, but instead of playing a flashy spread team such as Oregon of 2011 they will face a far more SEC like Wisconsin team. Leading Wisconsin on offense is senior running back Melvin Gordon, who will now be the sole featured back with the departure of last year’s leading ball carrier James White. Gordon will also have an experienced...

Aligning the Stars – Wisconsin Edition

As a new weekly feature, we’re going to compare recruiting talent ratings between LSU and their opponent for all major FBS games. While the recruiting rankings diminish in meaning as a player progresses into his college career because of coaching, injuries, work ethic, & myriad other reasons, it can serve a nice baseline to judge raw team talent. In many cases, a team will...

Scouting Wisconsin: A Q&A with Madtown Badgers

We caught up with Andrew Coppens at our Bloguin blogmates Madtown Badgers to get a feel for what to expect on Saturday from the Wisconsin perspective. You can also check out their site for our insight into the Tigers. Saturday Night Slant – It seems both coaches want to open things up more offensively. LSU is going with a mobile QB no matter who is in the game, but it looks like...

Final Preseason Depth Chart Released

Yesterday, the final depth chart before the season begins was released to the media. Of surprises, it included little. Anthony Jennings is still listed at the top of the QB list, but now Brandon Harris has an “or” near him, but we knew all along both would play to start the season. Quentin Thomas is now listed as an “or” alongside Frank Herron at the DT spot next to the other...

LSU Football Tickets Ninth Most Expensive On Secondary Market

As the team prepares for its opening game against Wisconsin on August 30, LSU currently holds the ninth highest-priced ticket on the secondary market while ranking 13th on the AP List of Top 25 Schools. Interestingly enough, LSU is one of five schools listed within the top 10 most expensive schools that also owns a double-digit ranking by AP. Rounding off the top 10 priciest schools...

It doesn’t matter who the QB is

If someone asked you, “What kind of team is LSU?” How would you answer? Since 2005, when Les Miles arrived, the answer would probably come easily. It would be some combination of strong defense, B1G running, & coaching quirks to keep things spicy. Before you got to pondering QB play, you’d probably mention  how special kickers have been under Miles & his haberdashery...

Breakout Star – Tight End

I know you must be thinking, “A breakout tight end at LSU? Impossible. How does a player breakout if he’s anchored to the o-line while the running backs do all of the heavy lifting?’ Traditionally, you’d be correct to think these things; however, the times are a changing, my friend, and one guy has the ability and the situation to do what no other LSU tight end has done in...

Wrapping up the first week of practice

We’re thismuch closer to football. LSU just wrapped up their first week of practice with their first full combined practice with pads on today. As has been hinted by many, this might be the last time the media gets to see the players in practice before the season begins. Practices could be closed after this point. The biggest news to come out was DT Quentin Thomas’ injury. Thomas...

The Next Breakout Star – Quarterbacks

Generally in this space we’ve talked about returning firepower and young guys who began to show promise and 2013 that are primed to launch in 2014. For the quarterbacks, this isn’t the case. LSU just lost the second most successful quarterback in the Miles era, statistically speaking. The Tigers are left with two newcomers — Anthony Jennings’ only significant play came in...

The Next Breakout Star – Special Teams

LSU’s placekickers under Les Miles have been an often underrated strength of some “damn strong” football teams. From Colt David to Josh Jasper to Drew Alleman, Tiger fans have seen their fair share of clutch kicks (and some impeccably executed fakes) over the years. It’s been almost a year since a walk-on redshirt freshman from New Iberia named Colby Delahoussaye wrangled...
