LSU Tigers 2016 football schedule

The Tigers welcome Alabama to Tiger Stadium on November 5 followed by a trip to face Arkansas on November 12.

Congratulations on all of your success this season. Those wins over Mississippi State, Auburn, Syracuse, Eastern Michigan, South Carolina, Florida and Western Kentucky were all entertaining for football fans to watch.

Tigers are known for preparing for their next kill, and guess who is lurking in the shadows next?

The seventh-ranked Crimson Tide has been bringing down opposing quarterbacks at a higher rate than any Nick Saban college defense since Michigan State in 1999. In fact, it's the highest sack average for a Saban-led team in 16 years, according to research by STATs.

LSU is not likely thinking about its 2016 season since it is already focused on the current one, and it has realistic dreams of winning the national championship.

"Anytime you're right around 35 percent you're pretty good", second-year coach Derek Mason said.

It won't be easy because Saban will always have his troops ready. "And it's been very helpful this year in terms of the kind of pass rush that we get and how you've been able to affect the quarterback and have not had to pressure almost as much as what we've done in the past".

You've got a swarming defense and one of the most talented rosters from top to bottom in the country. None other than the Mad Hatter himself, Les Miles. The only thing bigger than the hat on his head is his love for LSU.

Though many would agree that Elliott is deserving of a Heisman, he can not back up his value due to his lack of statistical output in relation to that of his competitors.

The No. 4 Tigers are becoming more balanced offensively - in contrast to what transpired over the first few weeks where the bulk of the offensive game plan relied on Fournette's production on the ground.

LSU travels to Florida on Oct. 8 and will then host Southern Miss (Oct. 15) and Ole Miss (Oct. 22) before closing out the month of October with an open date on the 29th. A win against Alabama would put it in the position to win the SEC West title and probably the entire conference since the SEC East still proves to be the inferior division in the SEC. The last time a wide receiver won the Heisman was Desmond Howard in 1991, and Coleman will need to continue to have monster numbers if he wants an invitation. "You know, what do we want to improve on, defense, offense, special teams", Saban said.

Said cornerback Dwayne Thomas: "We've let them slip away with a couple of wins".

Those five games at home to end the season are going to be nice. But first, it's time to beat Alabama, which would be quite a delicious feast for the Tigers. The team hasn't had a weekend off since fall camp started in August, between practices, scrimmages, and eight consecutive games to start the season.
