The LSU Tigers are coming off somewhat of a let down from last season, they ended the year on a three game win streak and won their Outback Bowl appearance against Iowa. But for most fans this was far short of National Championship expectations, but ending the season 10-3 is a solid record. Les Miles will look to have a vast improvement going into this season, especially since Alabama will be breaking in a new quarterback and may not be as dominant as they have been.
The Tigers will start off their season with a neutral site game against Wisconsin, and then they have four games in the friendly confines of Death Valley. But the road games they do have this year are going to be tough with key road games at Auburn, Florida, Arkansas and Texas A&M. If the Tigers can minimize their losses on the road and find a way to win the tough games at home, then the Tigers will be sitting near the top of their division in the Southeastern Conference.
It looks like the Tigers may be looking at another 10 plus win season, and depending on how they handle division foes, they could be in Atlanta for another shot at a conference championship. The only real tough challenges they may face are Auburn on the road and Alabama at home, every other game on the schedule seems winnable for a good Tigers team.
Once again, there will be a more in-depth preview once we get closer to the start of fall.
