This is the 12th all-time meeting between the Tigers and Fighting Irish dating back to 1970.
With a win, LSU would knot the all-time series at six games apiece.
The sign of a well-coached team is if they get better in the month of November.
LSU went 3-1 with the only loss being in Tuscaloosa, where they outgained Alabama even in defeat. The biggest issue will be the edges of the LSU defense with three starting linebackers missing. Nothing about the lead-up to this game makes me think this will be a fun one to watch. There’s no indication that this should or will be a high-scoring affair other than the pedigrees of the two schools themselves.
Well, once the dust settled, you were stuck with a nice-looking structure that couldn’t let you print and charged for a plate of green beans, while your old flame just kept on trucking, dispensing cheap copies and good-old-fashioned home cooking to someone who truly valued what they brought to the table.
A narrow judgment in a broad, well-reasoned ruling came from Judge Philip Simon in a due process lawsuit filed by the accused student at Notre Dame.
The ruling (which you can read here) was a reminder that in virtually all due process lawsuits, a fair-minded judge can find ample reasons to rule against the university.
Perhaps incredibly, Notre Dame hasn’t won a New Year’s bowl game 1993, when it beat Southwest Conference champion Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl. LSU should have the ability to keep that string of futility going, but Notre Dame’s run-based offense is structured to take advantage of the pieces the Tigers are missing — Key, Thompson and Alexander.
If replacements like K’Lavon Chaisson, Ray Thornton and Tyler Taylor step up, LSU will win.
