The question isn’t whether LSU will win. It’s whether the Tigers will allow the Mocs to score. And, more importantly, whether the offense will improve on its red-zone efficiency over what it did against BYU. Here’s giving both offenses the benefit of the doubt.

The Tigers get a chance for several things in this one. First, prove to the fans they can score consistently in the red zone (three TDs in six trips last week). Second, show off even more members of that 2017 signing class, specifically what many believe is the future at QB, Myles Brennan.

A lot of young players will be champing at the bit to get in this one, so you'd better have your programs handy. A lot of new and unfamiliar names will get significant playing time, so the only question is: Can LSU pitch a second straight shutout? The answer: Yes.
