Geaux Tigers!

My LSU Tigers pulled off another win last night in fine form. They started a little slowly, but got with the program and trounced Louisiana Tech 58-10. Mike and I listened to it on It wasn't on network TV; it was only shown on pay-per-view. The next two LSU games are on CBS. This coming Saturday (11/17), the Tigers travel to Oxpatch to play Ole Miss. The game is at 2:30 pm (CST). The following Saturday (11/23) is the last game of the regular season, with LSU playing Arkansas at Tiger Stadium at 1:30 pm (CST). LSU has clinched the SEC West title so they will definitely be playing in the SEC Championship game on Saturday, December 1, in Atlanta, at 3 pm (CST), also to be aired on CBS. The opponent is TBD, but will probably be Florida. That promises to be an exciting game, if the regular season match-up between the two teams is any indication.
Perhaps even more exciting than LSU's performance yesterday was Illinois' performance against Ohio State and (gasp!) Mississippi State's "Crooming" of Alabama. And what to think of Kansas' 10-0 season thus far? Granted, most of the teams they've played haven't been especially challenging, but that doesn't change the fact that they're ranked (as of last week) #4 in the BCS. Their real challenge will come in their match-up against Mizzou (as of last week ranked #6 in the BCS) in their final game of the regular season on November 24.
