LSU Football Schedule 2020 Prediction, Best Case Scenario
11-1: Everyone assumes a drop-off after losing Joe Burrow, Joe Brady, and a whole slew of key parts from the 2019 national champion juggernaut. And then comes a blowout win over UTSA to start, a decisive victory at home over Texas, and everything kicks right back in with a 5-0 start before going to Florida.
As good as LSU might be again, in a best case scenario – something will go wrong along the way – there’s a loss on the road to either Florida, Auburn or Texas A&M. However, there’s a win over Alabama, no problems against anyone else, and it’s off to the SEC Championship game again with a chance to get back to the College Football Playoff.
LSU Football Schedule 2020 Prediction, Worst Case Scenario
8-4: Everyone is right. There will be a drop-off after losing Burrow, Brady, etc. and it shows against a jacked up Texas team that pitches a nearly perfect game. With a loss at Florida, hopes of repeating as the national champion are gone before mid-October, and then the real problems kick in.
The Tigers lose to Alabama, drop both road games to Auburn and Texas A&M, and the season storylines are 1) 2019 was a one-hit wonder and 2) Ed Orgeron’s contract extension – over $7 million a year through 2026 – looks like a potentially massive mistake.
