Defender Picks

 

LSU Snags Top-4 Seed in NCAA Baseball Championship


The Boot will be represented in the Division I Baseball Championship this summer, as LSU was given the fourth seed in the NCAA’s summer classic. The LSU Tigers sailed into the fourth spot with a 43-17 ranking. The seeding guarantees that LSU will have home field advantage should they advance to the super-regionals — provided they win at the regional games this week. 


NFL Draft Update: Jean-Baptiste a Saint, Trio of Tigers Picked


Update 3:25 p.m.

The New Orleans Saints looked to Jean Baptiste to help out their defense on the second day of the NFL Draft. Meanwhile, LSU Tigers were flying off the board. The pickin' party moves into the latter stages on Saturday, with both teams still having plenty of chances to see their names up.


NFL Draft: Saints, LSU Help Pair of WRs Go Pro


Mock drafts across the country are going to scrap as the real, live NFL Draft is underway. So far, Louisiana's own New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers have each had a selection, with more to come as the picking rolls on with the second and third rounds Friday night (6 p.m., ESPN).


LSU Headed to Outback Bowl


The LSU football team has been Between the Hedges and to JerryWorld this season. For their bowl game, the Bayou Bengals are headed to the Outback. The Tigers accepted an invite to play in the Outback Bowl in Tampa on New Year's Day, the athletic department confirmed Sunday.


LSU, Arkansas Set to Battle for the Golden Boot on Senior Day


The Mad Hatter may have already taken the last bite of Thanksgiving dinner, but on Friday he'll be hoping for another helping of what his LSU Tigers served to Texas A&M last week. On senior day in Tiger Stadium, the Bayou Bengals will look to close out their regular season campaign with a win over Arkansas in the annual Battle for the Golden Boot (1:30 p.m., CBS).


LSU Football Looks to Rebound Against Furman Paladins


Homecoming weekend at LSU won't be as triumphant as expected, but the Fighting Tigers football team will have to pick themselves up and soldier on after last week's loss at Ole Miss and prepare for a tough November schedule that includes two of their top SEC West rivals. The next part of the Bayou Bengals' season starts Saturday night against the Furman Paladins (6 p.m., Tiger Vision pay-per-view).


LSU Overpowers Florida, 17-6


SEC power football hadn't been heard from for a while, but there was a sighting in Baton Rouge on Saturday afternoon. And, as it often goes in Death Valley, the LSU Fighting Tigers were able to impose their will on the visiting side. Relying on a reawakened defense and the power run game, the Bayou Bengals came away with a 17-6 victory over Florida to improve to 6-1 (3-1 SEC).


LSU Renews Tiger Battle with Auburn in Death Valley


The Blazers and Golden Flashes were fun distractions, but it's time for the LSU football team to face their own species. On Saturday night, the Tigers of Auburn bring a no-huddle offense along with the usual War Eagle histrionics to Death Valley for LSU's first SEC showdown of the season (6:45 p.m., ESPN).

LSU's Upcoming Season: Mettenberger, Mad Hatter & New Offensive Scheming



Mike the Tiger is up roaming his cage and Les Miles is acting dodgy on the podium. That can only mean that LSU Fighting Tigers football is about to begin once again.


Jeremy Hill Returns to LSU Football Team


This year, the LSU football team put their legal troubles behind them on the first day of camp. On Monday, the team reinstated their leading rusher, who was suspended after a bar fight earlier this year. Hill, who rushed for 755 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012, will still be subject to additional punishment. But a judge's ruling that allowed him to travel for games cleared the way for his return to the gridiron, and no. 33 was on the practice field Monday afternoon.
