Louisiana State Prediction Thread

War Eagle!

Man, they just keep getting bigger, don't they? Last week's game against Arkansas was arguably the biggest game at Jordan-Hare since the 2006 LSU game. Well, this week's game against LSU is even bigger. The matchup of two 7-0, top-six teams is a tremendous game. People have been saying that the atmosphere in Auburn was electric last weekend; well, it needs to be even more electric on Saturday. LSU, despite their offensive struggles and seeming reliance on a Faustian influence, will bring everything they've got on Saturday. Knowing the history of the Tiger Bowl, ANYTHING can and will happen on Saturday night. Expect the unexpected.

I had to strain my brain to calculate the point differentials in last week's prediction thread, because almost nobody foresaw such a shootout. Congratulations go out to commenter UglyJoe for having the closest prediction to the actual, 65-43 score. His prediction of 52-41 was 15 points off the actual score, and gets him added to the weekly winners' list! Congrats!

Game 1 (Arkansas State): Sparkey
Game 2 (Mississippi State): Col.Angus
Game 3 (Clemson): Jumpn_JackFlash (PERFECT)
Game 4 (South Carolina): Todd92
Game 5 (Louisiana-Monroe): SandMountainTiger
Game 6 (Kentucky): AU04Natlchamps
Game 7 (Arkansas): UglyJoe

Good luck trying to come up with a prediction for this weekend's game. Looking at the numbers, I have a hard time seeing how LSU can outscore us. We won't get 65 (unless the game goes into a series of overtimes), but I doubt we'll be held in check much by the Bengal Tiger defense. Our defense is terrible, particularly against the pass, but LSU only threw for 103 yards (4.7 yards per attempt) against McNeese State last weekend. When Auburn has the ball, it will be a battle of gladiators. When LSU has the ball, it will be a cripple fight. The game may come down to special teams.

All of that said, I still believe Cam finds a way to get us on the board often enough, and Les's luck finally runs out.

Louisiana State 20
Auburn 33

P.S. - Entries are accepted until one hour before kickoff (1:30 PM CT) and if a user enters two scores, only the first counts. Also, if you only give a score and don't designate which score belongs to which team, I will assume that you are picking Auburn to win by that score.

We're all just trying to have a good time here. Don't be a jerk, and we won't have a problem with you. War Eagle!
