Tennessee vs LSU Game Preview

Why Tennessee Will Win

That was a nice two weeks.

The Vols started the season 4-0 with a big, fun win over Florida going into a bye week break. As much as can be, they’re rested, they’ve had time to prepare, and now they get to go against an LSU team that’s been on a bit of a rough run.

The Tigers are playing well, but the Auburn game was tough, the Mississippi State was tough, now they have to get ready for a passing game that’s as efficient as any in college football. Hendon Hooker hasn’t thrown a pick, and he doesn’t have to force much thanks to a ground game that hit the 200-yard mark against everyone but Pitt.

That’s the No. 1 offense in college football rolling into Baton Rouge.

The defense is great on third downs and it has been strong against the run, but …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 5

Why LSU Will Win

The Tennessee defense hasn’t been anything great overall.

Anthony Richardson and Florida bombed away for over 450 yards, the pass rush has been hit or miss, and the secondary is allowing more yards per game than anyone in the SEC.

Jayden Daniels needs to kick it all back in.

The former Arizona State transfer quarterback has been a terrific playmaker so far, but he’s coming off a rough day against Auburn leading to a players-only meeting to try getting everyone on the same page.

Going against the Tennessee secondary should fix a slew of problems.

On the other side, the defense is doing a nice job of taking the ball away, it’s been great at not breaking too often after bending, and overall it has quietly been really, really good.

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

The LSU defense is the best Tennessee has had to face so far, and it’s going to show.

Hooker and the Vol offense will get things rolling to make this a back-and-forth fight, but Daniels and the LSU attack will keep up.

There haven’t been too many deep shots from Daniels so far – that’s about to change.

The Tiger offense will run well enough to take some of the pressure off, and the defense will come up with the one second half stop the Vols won’t.

LSU vs Auburn Game Preview

Why LSU Will Win

Shhhhhhhhh, LSU is actually pretty good.

Forgotten about by the college football nation after the weird loss to Florida State to kick things off, Brian Kelly’s club came up with easy wins over Southern and New Mexico, and it rallied back late in a strong win over Mississippi State.

The passing game has been great – more on the problems with that in a moment – and the running game stepped up with over 200 yards in each of the last three games.

The defense held up against the Mississippi State passing game, the run defense wasn’t bad against Florida State, and now it gets to go against an Auburn offense that can’t move the chains, can’t get the passing game going, and it isn’t getting enough production from the offensive line.

The LSU D line should be able to take over, but …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Auburn Will Win

Is Jayden Daniels okay?

The Arizona State transfer quarterback has been great so far for LSU. He almost pulled the Florida State game out of the fire, he came through in the fourth quarter against Mississippi State, and he did whatever he wanted against New Mexico before getting knocked out with a back injury.

He’s supposed to be fine, but the LSU offense needs him to shine on the road in what should be an interesting environment.

The weather isn’t supposed to be horrible, but it’s likely going to rain with just enough wind to matter – that might be a bit of a differentiating factor for a team that’s struggling so much offensively.

Keep the score low, rely on a run defense that had problems against Penn State but has held up okay overall, and …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

The LSU running game should take over.

Auburn’s defense has been fine, but Penn State was able to rumble well, and Missouri almost-and-should’ve come up with the overtime win last week before the unfortunate fumble near the end zone saved Auburn’s day.

Auburn has to win the turnover battle, but it won’t. It has to outgain LSU on the ground, but it won’t.

It’ll be a low scoring and interesting fight, but LSU will come up with the key plays the home side won’t.

LSU vs New Mexico Game Preview

Why New Mexico Will Win

The Lobos are scoring a little bit.

They’re not ripping it up, but they’re averaging 27 points per game – that’s a lot considering how rough it was to get things moving last year.

The running game was solid in the win over UTEP, the defense forced seven takeaways in the victory – New Mexico is fourth in the nation in takeaways – and they’re applying enough defensive pressure to give LSU a hard time.

The Tigers aren’t hitting enough downfield plays, the line is allowing three sacks per game, the special teams continue to be rocky, and …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why LSU Will Win

That’s the LSU everyone thought was possible.

Had the Tigers started the season off with a warm-up game against Southern instead of Florida State – instead of kicking off against FSU and playing the Jaguars the following week – they’d probably be 3-0. They’re just starting to find a bit of a groove, and it came together with a terrific performance in the win over Mississippi State.

The pass defense was solid in the 31-16 victory, the offense was perfectly balanced, and New Mexico won’t be able to do much more to get things going.

Yeah, the Lobo offense is better than the 2021 version. It’s still not great.

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

New Mexico will come up with a few takeaways and be just annoying enough defensively to make LSU fans a little bit grouchy.

The Tiger running game will take over, the offense will rise up in the second quarter to take control, and there won’t be any sort of a threat from the Lobo O to make anyone sweat.

It won’t be a perfect performance, but it’s all starting to build under Brian Kelly.

Mississippi State vs LSU Game Preview

Why Mississippi State Will Win

The offense has been fantastic.

The Bulldogs haven’t had any true layup games yet – Memphis and at Arizona to start the season – and everything worked without much of a hitch.

Will Rogers and the passing attack are rolling, the defense has been great overall, and the team has somewhat quietly plays as well as anyone in the SEC not named Georgia.

Meanwhile, LSU struggled against Florida State, was great against Southern – the result against the Noles might have been very, very different if the first two games were turned around – and there’s still a question over whether or not the team is sharp yet.

The defense has been solid overall, but it hasn’t dealt with anything like Mississippi State is bringing. It’s too sharp, too productive, and too efficient so far.

LSU hasn’t come up with enough of a pass rush so far to matter.

CFN Expert Picks, Week 3

Why LSU Will Win

Hello, Jayden Daniels.

The transfer quarterback from Arizona State didn’t get enough credit for almost pulling the FSU game out of the fire, and then he took target practice against Southern. So far he has hit 78% of his passes with five touchdowns and no picks, and he took off for 132 yards and a score. That’s set. The quarterback situation is solid.

Everything else should start to come together with a little more time.

As is, the Tigers have the talent in the secondary to hold up against what’s coming from Rogers and the hot receiving corps, the MSU D isn’t getting into the backfield enough to bother Daniels, and then there are the turnovers.

It’s the cost of doing business in the Mississippi State offense, but the five giveaways in two games are concerning, and LSU’s defense has generated six takeaways.

Week 3 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

This will be one of Saturday’s hidden gems.

There aren’t any massive national games, but this will turn into one considering all of the storylines.

What happens if Brian Kelly starts 1-2? What happens if Mississippi State is 3-0 and looks fantastic? What happens if LSU pulls this off and starts to look the part?

Mississippi State might not have everything in place, and there are a slew of flaws that will be exposed at some point – the turnovers have to chill out – but it won’t be this week.

The Bulldog run defense has been terrific, Rogers is too hot, and it’ll be a terrific win in a fun back-and-forth battle.

LSU vs Southern Game Preview

Why Southern Will Win

Everyone playing in this game who beat a Florida team last weekend, raise your hand.

Not so fast, LSU.

All the Southern Jaguars did was put up 86 points – scoring 42 in the first quarter with over 600 yards of total offense highlighted by close to 400 yards on the ground. Granted it was against Florida Memorial University – it’s in Miami – but it was still an awesome offensive performance.

Southern has a nice dual threat quarterback in Besean McCray, the ground game is for real, it’s getting LSU on a short week, and …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 2

Why LSU Will Win

That blocked extra point by Florida State was the worst thing that could happen to Southern.

You think LSU is going to be a wee bit surly?

The Tigers lost 24-23 as they played like a team that desperately needed to play Southern first to get the tune-up out of the way.

There’s a lot to work on. The passing game has to be sharper, there has to be more plays down the field, the special teams need to be night-and-day better, and the base needs to see something big out of Brian Kelly, just because it wants to.

Week 2 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

With Mississippi State coming up next, LSU will look to rest as many key parts as possible. But there’s a whole lot of stuff to do first.

The team doesn’t just need an ego boost, it has to be far sharper. The team needs a live scrimmage, and it’s about to get it. It’ll get up fast, and then will chill over the last 20 minutes.
