I never know what LSU has preseason beyond a lot of talent.  They can look great and mediocre in successive games.

This is an interesting match up for sure, by far the best game of week one I think.  I think there are only 3 or 4 really good OOC games scheduled this year.

Any time you have a hard as nails defense like LSU does, you automatically have a shot in almost every game. Every year, though, there's the promise that the offense is going to create. Every year, though, they stand in the middle of the field and try to muddle their way to some points. There always seems to be a reason why they won't break out, and since they almost always have the other team out talented, they end up winning a good amount of games.

Once again, I'm hearing that the Tigers have a genuine offensive game plan prepared. Maybe this season is different. If so, I'm glad Texas plays them early, since it's almost inconceivable that they'll be good enough at it to execute against the Texas D.

Just one point to clarify, this game is in week 2.  Horns play LaTech in week 1, and LSU plays Georgia Southern.

Well the B12 got off to a good start so far.  9-0 with one remaining game between OU and Houston, which I expect to be a Sooner victory but might be a decent test for them.

A couple B12 schools struggled more than I expected, especially ISU against Northern Iowa, but first games are weird and a win is a win.


If the Sooners do win, I wonder when was the last time the B12 went 10-0 in week 1?

. . . If the Sooners do win, I wonder when was the last time the B12 went 10-0 in week 1?
That's knowable, but the only way I know how to get it would be by looking up each team's opening-day record since 1996 on this site: www.jhowell.net/cf/scores/ScoresIndex.htm.

No. 6 LSU at No. 9 Texas. First regular-season meeting since 1954.


1954????

the Huskers have played LSU 6 times since 1971, but not in the reg season

Only twice in the reg season of 1975 & 1976

LSU 38
Texas 24

LSU has the depth.  But stranger things have happened.

I don't see LSU scoring 38.  I mean, I'm glad they've finally discovered the forward pass and all, but Texas sees a better version of the spread than LSU will be capable of operating at least 6 or 7 times per season. To score 38 they'd have to be at the same level offensively as OU, who has had the undisputed #1 offense in the country the past couple of seasons.

24-20 is a more likely outcome IMO, and the game could go either way.  I think Texas will win but won't be at all surprised if it goes the other way.

I think Sam is the difference maker in the game, and Tom Herman's teams tend to just be built for big games like this.  They'll lose to the likes of Maryland, but his teams tend to excel on the big stage.

TH does have a nack for getting his team up for big games

To win this game the Horns are gonna have to have a generally bad attitude from opening kickoff
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

I feel that the Horns have the advantage at QB

that could be the difference
