PREDICTION: LSU vs. Fresno State

The Tigers take their final step outside SEC play this season. LSU will head into an open date next weekend before heading to Tennessee. While Fresno has a history of playing the big boys welkl, LSU should roll.

Intangibles:

 

Fresno State has never played at LSU. The Bulldogs have a reputation of playing "anyone, anywhere" and have a history of knocking off big name teams in the past, i.e. Oregon State, Colorado, Colorado State, Washington, Wisconsin, California and Kansas State. The Bulldogs also took defending national champion USC to the limit losing 50-42 last season. Fresno isn't intimidated by big stadiums and high profile teams.

 

Advantage: Fresno State

 

 

Prediction:

 

But don't kid yourself, this Fresno State team is pretty bad. Yes, that game against Southern Cal last season was one of the most exciting games in recent memory. But since then, the Bulldogs have lost nine of their last 10 games, including a 68-37 loss at Hawaii last Saturday. The Bulldogs did have a close one with Oregon earlier in the year, but FSU has lost to the likes of Utah State. Fresno State has a lot of grit, but the Bulldogs are mediocre on offense and bad defensively. Look for LSU to roll up another lopsided victory and head into the open date with Tennessee squarely in its sites.
