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.
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.
