LSU Tigers Football Schedule Analysis: It’s built for a very fast turnaround if they can take care of their home games and get by UCLA in the opener. The date in the Rose Bowl is fun and winnable, and there’s nothing to deal with in the other non-conference games that should break a sweat.
Getting the Florida game at home helps, and playing Auburn and Texas A&M in Baton Rouge is a huge break. Yes, the Alabama game is on the road, but there’s a week off to prepare, and then the last three games are at home.
Best Case Scenario: 10-2. How quickly can the Tigers be back to form? This might not be an 11-1-good team, but it can afford a loss at Alabama and roll on through with almost all of the other top games at home.
Worst Case Scenario: 6-6. If LSU still has problems, it could lose at Kentucky, and it could certainly drop another date against Mississippi State to go along with all of the tough games on the slate. Lose to Florida and/or on the road to UCLA, and it’ll be another tough season.
