LSU beat Auburn tonight, but it was ugly. And when I say ugly, I mean really ugly. Again, there were too many penalties and turnovers, and LSU looked lucky to come away with the win. The final score was 12-10. What I said after the first game is still true today. LSU does not look like a championship team, even though their record is now 4-0. Unfortunately, the Tigers are not playing anywhere close the level that Alabama is playing at. Unless there’s a dramatic shift in the way that the Tigers are playing, I expect LSU to lose at least 1-2 regular season games this year. I hope I’m wrong.
My alma mater Louisiana Tech, however, is poised to make some noise this year. Tonight they beat Illinois at Illinois 52-24. The game was an absolute beat-down on the Illini. The win takes them to 3-0, and it’s the third game in three weeks in which Tech has scored over 50 points on their opponent. If Tech beats Virginia next week, they could be 5-0 going in to their home game against Texas A&M in a few weeks. It should prove to be a big test. Geaux, Bulldogs!
