LSU Finishes Strong at Miss. State, 59-26


by Chris Rinaldi

Mississippi State was able to keep up with LSU for three quarters, but LSU's offense proved to be too much for the Bulldogs as the game reached the decisive period. The Tigers entered the third quarter clinging to a 31-26 lead, but scored 28 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to finish the game with a lobsided 59-26 victory that quieted the cowbells in Starkville.


LSU Looks to Improve Defense, Run Game Against Miss. State


On Saturday night in Starkville, LSU will try to turn things around in two areas where they're not used to having many problems: winning and defense. Like last week, the Fighting Tigers football team (4-1) will head into hostile territory to battle some SEC Bulldogs. This time, they'll face a 2-2 Mississippi State squad (6 p.m., ESPN), and work for a different outcome. And the answer might be more cowbell.


Tiger Cries: Georgia Strikes Last to Beat LSU, 44-41


by Chris Rinaldi

Zach Mettenberger and Aaron Murray lived up to they hype surrounding their quarterback battle, dating three years back, but Mettenberger was unable to lead his team to triumph over the Georiga Bulldogs on Saturday. The LSU football team suffered a 44-41 loss at the hands of Murray, who was able to put together one more drive than his former teammate, taking advantage of an LSU defense that was incapable of doing much of anything to the Dawgs' offense.


LSU-Georgia Gameday: Parallel Paths Converge Between the Hedges


Given their 64-5 record in prime time home games since the turn of the millenium, the LSU Fighting Tigers football team would probably rather spend Saturday nights in Death Valley. But to live up to the back-end ambitions that Les Miles keeps talking about, they'll have to win some road games at some of the SEC's other vaunted venues. On Saturday, the sixth-ranked Bayou Bengals head Between the Hedges to take on the ninth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs. (2:30 p.m., CBS).


Paul Dietzel, LSU Football Coaching Legend, Passes


Paul Dietzel, the legendary LSU head football coach who led the Tigers to a national championship in 1958, died Tuesday. He was 89, and died after a brief illness, according to the LSU Athletic Department. Dietzel coached the football team from 1955-61, laying the foundation for the lofty ambitions that accompany the arrival of every fall in Louisiana.


Mettenberger's Mom Gets Break For LSU-Georgia Game


The LSU football team is set to head Between the Hedges for a Top-10 showdown with the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday. But until then, there's a whole week to examine storylines and get the coaches to talk about it.


Auburn Fan Goes on 'Grand Theft Auto' Rampage Near LSU Campus


When LSU hears about a bizarre arrest at a Baton Rouge bar, they hold their breath to see if it's a starter. But before the Bayou Bengals' game against Auburn on Saturday, it was one of the other Tigers who left in a squad car. According to WLVA-TV, an Auburn fan decided to take out his anger at his rivals by channeling a game of Grand Theft Auto.


Rolling Hill: RB's 3 TDs Lead LSU to 35-21 Win Over Auburn


LSU improved to 4-0 on a rainy Saturday night in Baton Rouge, beating the Auburn Tigers 35-21.  The Bayou Bengals dominated the first half, jumping to a 21-0 lead, by taking advantage of Auburn's sloppy play, and relying on its running game, in a rain soaked half.


Saints Set to Face Cardinals, Including Ex-LSU Stars Peterson, Mathieu


The New Orleans Saints' early season schedule isn't designed to get fans too far out of the comfort zone. Weeks 1 and 2 brought division battles against the teams WhoDats have always loved to hate. Now, in Week 3, the Cardinals come to town (Noon, Fox) with a pair of former Tigers we used to cheer for at DBU. Still, the alternate reality that the team is used to must still be in place, as the defense is scoring points and Breesus is talking about needing to execute better.


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).
