LSU Beats… Everybody?

LSU Logo
Last night West Virginia – a team LSU beat on their home field earlier this year – destroyed Clemson in the Orange Bowl. Earlier Oregon beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. Arkansas is probably favored to beat Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl, and of course LSU has already defeated Alabama once this season. If Arkansas does win, and even if Alabama wins the rematch, LSU will have defeated four of the winners of the top six bowl games. The didn’t get a chance to play Michigan, but is there any doubt they would win? The outcome against Oklahoma State would probably be in more doubt.

It would be interesting if someone with access to the data could crunch some numbers and see if there ever was a team that has played and defeated that many major bowl winners in the same season.
