A pair of Baton Rouge robbers almost made off with 21 LSU championship rings, but police managed to recover the haul.

LSU Defeats Iowa 21-14, All Eyes on '14

When Jeremy Hill bruised through the Iowa Hawkeyes defense and across the goal line with 3:02 remaining in Outback Bowl, he capped off one of the best games of his LSU career, in what may be the last game of his LSU career, and ensured LSU would reach ten victories for the fourth consecutive year, with a 21-14 victory over Iowa.

Outback Bowl Preview: New QB, Old Score for LSU in Iowa Showdown

LSU's Anthony Jennings era is about to begin. Fitting with their New Year's timing, college football bowl games are often as much about looking ahead to the next season as they are a culmination of the current campaign. That's especially true of the Bayou Bengals' Outback Bowl clash with the Iowa Hawkeyes (8-4) on New Year's Day (Noon, ESPN). With Jennings, a freshman, set to make his first start at QB in place of the injured Zach Mettenberger, Tigers' fans will get a taste of what to expect over the next few years.

ESPN is reporting that Zach Mettenberger tore his ACL during the Bayou Bengals' dramatic win over Arkansas on Friday, and will miss the team's bowl game. LSU plans to release an official update on Mettenberger Wednesday.
