Report: Mettenberger to Miss LSU's Bowl Game


Updated 1:30 p.m., 12.4

The LSU football team has to wait until Sunday to find out where they will go bowling. But Tiger fans will likely know the status of the injured starting quarterback sooner. 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.

by Chris Rinaldi

When Travin Dural crossed the goal line with 1:15 left in the 4th quarter, the LSU football team breathed a sigh of relief, welcoming a new era with a dramatic victory. In Friday's regular season finale at Tiger Stadium, the Bayou Bengals saw Odell Beckham Jr., two offensive lineman and senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger go down, only to overcome the injuries and a six-point fourth quarter defecit on the arm and legs of freshman quarterback Anthony Jennings. 


Today in New Orleans: 11.28.13


Leftovers and hangovers highlight the day after Thanksgiving, so luckily there's more football on Friday afternoon to help you remain sedentary. By nightfall, the city starts coming back to life with Friday Nights at NOMA and Celebration in the Oaks at City Park. Plus, plenty of funk. Happy Birthday to clarinetist and jazz historian Dr. Michael White, born on this day in 1954. Now, the rundown:


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).


Les Miles' Thanksgiving Good to Last Bite (VIDEO)


The Mad Hatter was still in the midst of Lunch with Les on Monday afternoon, but, like many of us, he was already thinking about Thursday's dinner. Coming off his LSU football squad's triumph over Johnny Football and Texas A&M on Saturday, coach Les Miles was in a giving mood when it came to holiday sound bites.


LSU Runs Over Manziel, Texas A&M, 34-10


by Chris Rinaldi

The LSU football team was able to stifle Johnny Manziel and salvage the 2013 season Saturday with an impressive 34-10 victory over Texas A&M at Tiger Stadium. The Tigers faced the possibility of falling to 7-4, but a young defense that has been inept all year shined alongside the Bayou Bengals' offense, for the team's most impressive, complete game of the year.


LSU Preview: Manziel, Texas A&M Head for Death Valley


The LSU football team has only played one game in November so far, and the season is beginning to wind down as the end of the month nears. But the Bayou Bengals still have a lot of Johnny Football left. Texas A&M and the reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel journey to Death Valley on Saturday (2:30 p.m., CBS), marking the Aggies' first appearance in Tiger Stadium since 1994.


LSU-Bama Recap: Tide Turns on Tigers, 38-17


by Chris Rinaldi

LSU rolled into Tuscaloosa strong, but ended with a whimper. The Tigers began the game with a strong defensive stand and an efficient drive, but, by the end, Alabama was able to pick apart the Tigers' defense on the strength of T.J. Yeldon's legs, and crush the LSU offensive line with a swarming pass rush, on the way to a 38-17 victory.


LSU-Bama Preview: Tigers' Aerial Attack Could Join Trench Warfare


The LSU football team has already suffered two losses, and it might be tempting count their lost opportunity to win the national championship as reason to tune out the Tiger hype. But the true measure of their season comes on Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, when the Bayou Bengals renew their rivalry with top-ranked Alabama. (7 p.m., CBS).
