Record: 3-0

Previous Ranking: 3 (Trend: –)

Last Week: LSU 45, Kent State 13

This Week: vs. Auburn

Next Week: at Georgia

All the SEC does is produce insane matchups with massive national implications.

LSU has one more tune up this weekend before a huge game at Athens, Georgia against the Bulldogs. A win against the Bulldogs, and LSU should be undefeated heading into their November 9 game at Alabama.

Yes, LSU has games at home against Florida at Ole Miss, but LSU is currently playing like a top three team in the nation. Georgia is the only real threat standing between LSU and anther huge showdown with Alabama.

But until LSU can officially say they beat Georgia and beat Alabama on the road, the deck is still stacked against them. However, if you had to pick a team to pull this off, it would be either Oregon or LSU.
