Why we lose to LSU
this will be the easy one. Why we'll win will be up in a second.
Aaron Murray stares down receivers as he has at times, and overthrows others. LSU's play making DBs have a field day with Murray on a Kentucky-like off day, and it only gets worse as Montgomery and Mingo come barely touched off the edge time and time again around our as wide as they are tall OTs. On top of that, someone knocks Crowell out after about 6 carries, and their too quick front 7 closes hole after hole stopping us in the backfield.
On D, they just lean and lean on us. The D looks strong for about the first 20 minutes, but turnovers and short fields let LSU score, and extended time on the field all first half leads to a bunch of worn out Dawgs in the second as their power running game and physical big backs take over.
Add in a KO return for touchdown, and early successful fake FG/fake punt from the Crazy One, and they end up more than doubling the 2 TD spread.
