LSU vs Florida

Is anyone paying attention? The players sure didn't seem to last week, but thankfully the SEC schedule is now here for good with a trip to the Swamp and the Florida Gators this Saturday, and hopefully brings with it a return of "want" from the team. This is a game that most Tigers were chalking up as a sure win before the season, but now it looks like a much more typical LSU-Florida battle with 2 elite SEC defenses in a game that will likely go to the final minutes. One bit of good news coming out of Baton Rouge is that fullback J.C. Copeland's knee is well and he is expected to play.

LSU vs Towson

LSU takes on the mighty... uh... ok, does anyone know Towson's mascot? (pause for a quick Google) Waitaminute, you mean they're Tigers too? Clearly, folks can't get enough of a good thing! So this week is a brief respite from the physical SEC wars and a chance to see what youngsters might be a factor for the rest of the season. LSU's defense has youth all over the back 7 vying for playing time, receivers who apparently need to re-learn how to catch, and of course everyone wants to see how that left tackle spot is going to go.

LSU vs Auburn

LSU opens SEC play this Saturday on the plains against Auburn. It's the next step toward Atlanta and then Miami. Last year, Auburn was one of many teams that LSU smacked around like... well, a full grown tiger playing with a cub who is confused about whether he's a tiger or a bird. They'll be looking to make a statement as Gene Chizik's seat is growing hot with losses mounting, despite the big upset win over UL-Monroe. Coach Les Miles has LSU rolling once again though, so this should be another fun game to see the Tigers go on the road and achieve victory.

LSU vs Idaho

This week it's another opponent from way up northwest coming to Tiger Stadium, with the Idaho Vandals making the trip down to the bayou. This marks the 3rd straight Saturday Night in Death Valley, which doesn't happen often these days, but let's face it - the big attraction to this game is the chance for younger players to get more game experience - and there are quite a few of them on LSU's roster this fall.

LSU vs Washington

It's purple & gold everywhere this week with Washington coming to town. The Huskies bring a potent passing game with them, and with LSU also boasting a much improved passing game, Tiger Stadium this Saturday could see more aerial assaults than a mosquito spray plane with Alec Baldwin in the passenger seat, and definitely more than Baton Rouge has seen in many games. If last week's game seemed a bit like a scrimmage after a week of distractions, there should be a lot more focus this week.
