SEC West Previews: LSU

LSU continues to lose a ton of talent to the NFL Draft each year. They aren’t just seniors but players leaving early in mass. When will this catch up to the Tigers? They have won at least 10 games in each of the last four years, but many are anticipating a dip in 2014.

Schedule

  • vs. Wisconsin (in Houston, TX)
  • Sam Houston State
  • ULM
  • Mississippi State
  • New Mexico State
  • at Auburn
  • at Florida
  • Kentucky
  • Ole Miss
  • (Bye)
  • Alabama
  • at Arkansas
  • (Bye)
  • at Texas A&M (Thurs)

The first thing that sticks out is that they don’t have an off week until November 1st. But they have a lot of key games at home including MSU, Ole Miss and Alabama. While they have an unsettled quarterback situation and a lot of inexperience, if they could navigate a few hurdles they could be poised for another double-digit win season….or they may not be close.
