POSTGAME: LSU topples Rice, 42-10

The LSU Tigers played their last home game of the season Saturday night against the Rice Owls, winning 42-10 in Tiger Stadium. The lopsided matchup was everything we expected to be, as the Tigers consistently dominated in all phases of the game. LSU won the toss, and elected to receive to kick off the action. Despite a couple of dropped passes from Justin Jefferson early on, the Tigers were still able to piece together a touchdown drive with ease. They put seven on the scoreboard in less than four minutes, with a two-yard run by running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Rice was eaten up by the...

POSTGAME: #22 LSU 74, Louisiana Tech 67

The Tigers are 4-0 for the first time since 2012 Despite a limited Naz Reid, poor free throw shooting and being out-rebounded, the LSU Tigers held off a feisty LA Tech for their fourth straight win in as many tries. This marks the first time LSU Basketball started a season 4-0 since Johnny Jones’ 2012-13 squad won their first six games. The Bulldogs proved to be the toughest competition for the Tigers so far this season, snagging 16 offensive rebounds on 37 chances and leading the game for over eleven minutes. Star freshman Naz Reid didn’t start the game this evening, and only played a...

Quarterback Comparison: LSU vs. Rice

Quarterback Comparison: LSU vs. Rice

The final LSU home game presents a rather lopsided matchup, to put it nicely. Rice is easily the worst team on the Tigers’ schedule, and it’s predicted the Owls will drop to 1-11 by more than 40 points on Saturday. The talent levels between the two starting quarterbacks taking snaps this weekend is hardly comparable. There’s also a good chance we’ll see a third in the mix not too far into the action. Here’s how each of the signal-callers stack up. Joe Burrow Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports First Impression: Heading into the 11th start of his career, Burrow...

Tigers seek their best start in six years In an effort to start 4-0 for the first time since Johnny Jones’ first season at LSU, the #22 Tigers will take on the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs tonight in the PMAC. This will be the fourth and final game of this home stand before LSU heads to Disney World for the AdvoCare Invitational. Louisiana Tech heads to Baton Rouge touting a 3-0 record of their own, including an impressive road win over Wichita State. Usually providing the easiest games of the entire year, this season’s first four games matched the Tigers up with tougher teams than most...

Tiger Tracklist: Rice

Tiger Tracklist: Rice

Ride out. Whatever I want, I go get it. Came from rags to riches, Blew up and took over my city. I’m thanking the lord I did it. Nick Brossette, Terrence Alexander, Tiger Scheyd, Foster Moreau, Ed Paris, John Battle, Michael Ostrom, Cole Tracy, David Ducre, Trey Gallman, Justin Mikush, Turner Simmers, Garrett Brumfield, Jacory Washington. All of those Tiger seniors will play their last game in Tiger Stadium, and it’s likely guys like Kristian Fulton and Devin White are going to forgo their senior year in search of a paycheck. It is the last home game of the year, the last chance to...

Tulane Hands Lady Tigers First Loss Of The Season

Tulane Hands Lady Tigers First Loss Of The Season

Krystal Freeman leads Green Wave to the upset Tulane entered this game one victory away from the program’s 700th win all-time. Early on, it looked as if the Lady Tigers would defend their home court and deny the Green Wave a victory for the third consecutive season. LSU controlled most of the first half and took a two point lead into the break. However, a third quarter in which the Tigers only put up seven points allowed Tulane to grab the lead with 17:02 remaining in the game. Tulane wouldn't surrender that lead for the remainder of the game. The Green Wave went on to win 56-54. The...

LSU vs. Rice: What to Watch For

LSU vs. Rice: What to Watch For

Tigers host the Rice Owls for one last tune-up before the season finale. Week 13 of the college football season is here, and it’s LSU’s final regular season game against the 1-10 Rice Owls as part of the annual SEC So-Con Saturday. It’s probably the only real cupcake game on LSU’s schedule this year, and with a cold snap I doubt there will be much enthusiasm. Still, it’s senior night, and one last time to see the Tigers live in and in person, in Death Valley. What to Watch For On Saturday Brush Up Low key, one of my all-time favorite individual sketches. Rice will enter this...

Les Miles, LSU Settle Remaining Buyout, LSU Saves $5 Million

Via Delly and everyone else on the beat, Les Miles and LSU have agreed to end his current buyout payments from his termination with a single lump sum, paid out today. Well, hello. #LSU and Les Miles have settled the remaining buyout he's owed. pic.twitter.com/idGHsy5Qoo— Ross Dellenger (@RossDellenger) November 15, 2018 Other reports have noted that Les was currently getting his buyout paid in monthly increments of ~$130K a month. There are a couple schools of thought here. Alleva’s comment about “it gives everyone incentive to move on” is some strange legalese. The only party...

Women’s Hoops Facing Tulane Tonight

Lady Tigers taking on the two Great Evils of this world: Hunger and The Greenies. On Thursday, the LSU women's basketball team will look to keep their perfect record intact when they take on Tulane. The Lady Tigers currently hold a record of 2-0 after beating Sam Houston State and Northern Colorado by a combined margin of 19 points. In last year’s campaign, Lisa Stockton’s Green Wave went 14-17 and missed out on the NCAA tournament. In the Tiger’s first two games of the season, junior Ayana Mitchell has played fantastic. The forward has averaged 17 points and 16.5 rebounds. Mitchell...

2018 ATVS PICK’EM - WEEK 12

Nothing like scraping the bottom of plane when coming in for a landing. Looks like I’m going to tumble over the finish like in a less than impressive fashion. You already know what I’m about to say. Nick Brossette slid into our hearts and crushed them in the Arkansas red zone. The other bad hit of the day was Kentucky’s painful regression back to normal. It seems some other website is going to win our competition. I don’t yet know how to reckon with that. Only 2 weeks plus the conference championships remain in our game. ROW THE BOAT CLANGA THE...

POSTGAME: #22 LSU 85, Memphis 76

Tigers win tenth straight game in the PMAC Despite allowing another opponent to score double digit three pointers, the LSU Tigers improved their record to a perfect 3-0 after handling the pesky Memphis Tigers. This win marks the tenth straight victory for LSU in the PMAC, dating back to a 77-65 win over Texas A&M in January. Skylar Mays proved to be a big factor early for the Tigers, as the junior guard led his team with 14 points on 10 shot attempts in the first half. Mays would finish with a team high 19 points, shooting 3-of-5 from the three point line. This line is particularly...

#22 Tigers look to repeat last year’s signature win After jumping up one spot to #22 in Monday’s AP Poll, the 2-0 LSU Tigers will play host to the Memphis Tigers in the PMAC Tuesday night. LSU started off their season last week with an easy 94-63 win over Southeastern LA and a strong 97-91 win over UNC Greensboro. Memphis only played one game so far this season, a 76-61 warm up win over Tennessee Tech. The two teams previously met up late last December in Memphis, a 71-61 win for LSU. That win, being the first of only three wins on the road, proved to be one of the more key victories to...

LSU 24, Arkansas 17: Post-Game Review

Ugly as hell, but still a win. LSU improved to 8-2 on year with a seven-point win over the Arkansas on a cold, ugly night in Fayetteville where the offense failed to put away the Razorbacks until the very end. It was a survive-and-advance situation, recovering from the hangover of the Alabama loss and getting past a desperate team in a rivalry situation. Most expected something ugly, and in that regard, it didn’t disappoint. And of course, a few of the requisite weird LSU-Arkansas moments. The 8-2 start is LSU’s best record at this point in the season since 2012, and at 5-2 in...
