Trends will be updated when they’ve been released.
Maybe LSU dropping out of the rankings for the first time in three years will be a wakeup call for Coach O and the Tigers that they need to be better. The thing is that with South Carolina, Auburn and Alabama all on deck, and a road date with Texas A&M still on deck, this is an uphill climb for the Tigers the rest of the way. This may be LSU’s best chance to get back on track against a Florida team licking its wounds after coming up short against Texas A&M and while the Gators may win this one at home, two scores and a hook still feels like a lot. I’ll take LSU and the points in this one.
