LSU 2018 College Football Season Opener

LSU LogoLSU faces Miami in the season opener for both teams. LSU has played in the Cowboy’s stadium for openers before, beating Oregon soundly a few years back. (They were scheduled to play their opening game in Houston last year but the game was moved to New Orleans due to hurricane issues.)

Miami was fantastic last year. They opened 10-0 and the “Turnover Chain” got lots of screen time. They stumbled at the end, losing to Pitt in their season final, losing to Clemson in the ACC Championship game, and losing to Wisconsin in their bowl game. They have opened the season as a top-ten team.

Meanwhile LSU had a good (not great) year in 2017, finishing with a 9-4 record and playing in what was certainly one of the more exciting bowl games, losing to Notre Dame. They are ranked #24 to begin the season, but have more questions than answers at this point. Mostly at QB, which is not new for them. 😕 With two players at that position tranfering out (and one coming in from Ohio State) the uncertainty continues!
