LSU has beaten three top 12 teams within the confines of Tiger Stadium. But today, the top-ranked Tigers go on the road and defend their No. 1 ranking against the 17th-ranked Wildcats of Kentucky. Here's our call...



This is a trap game for the Tigers. Coming off a huge win over Florida, LSU could be walking into danger going on the road to Lexington. The Tigers haven't played there recently, needing a pair of miracle comebacks in 2001 and 2002 to escape with a victory. Kentucky will be looking for the upset. The Tigers need to do everything possible to go into the game with their minds right and be focused on the Wildcats – and not Auburn the following week.


Advantage: Kentucky





Many feel LSU faced the best offense they'll see this year when Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators visited last weekend. But Andre Woodson and the Wildcats might trump the Gators in explosiveness. Woodson is a great passer, and Kentucky's offense will score some points against the Tigers. But can the Wildcats do anything to stop LSU? A year ago, a bowl-bound Kentucky team got shellacked 49-0 in Tiger Stadium. Don't expect LSU to dominate in that fashion again, but the top-ranked Tigers will win.
