LSU Falls at Ole Miss, 27-24


by Chris Rinaldi

It was upset Saturday in the SEC, and LSU was not exempt. Despite a late-game comeback attempt, the Tigers fell to the Rebels of Ole Miss, 27-24. Andrew Ritter’s 41 yard field goal sailed through the uprights, sealing victory for Ole Miss, leaving only two seconds left in the game.


LSU Looks to Keep Hammering Against Ole Miss


Before November's Crimson Tide, LSU must take a Rebel stand. Last week's win grind-it-out win over Florida has the Fighting Tigers football team back in the conversation about championships and, as ever, looking forward to the showdown with Alabama. But first, the sixth-ranked Bayou Bengals head to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford to battle 3-3 Ole Miss (6 p.m., ESPN2) and a spread offense that necessitated late-game heroics in 2012.


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 Gameday: Tigers Face Florida's Seasoned Defense, Young QB


The LSU football team is coming home. Fittingly, the Gators will be waiting. The tenth-ranked Bayou Bengals will look to avenge an excruciating 2012 loss at The Swamp in a Death Valley showdown with 17th-ranked Florida on Saturday (2:30 p.m., CBS). Where Georgia and LSU were ranked teams on parallel paths, the Gators and Tigers seem to be driving toward a head-on collision.


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.
