We are only a few games in but it looks like the LSU Tigers are going to be a force this season.
The same cannot be said for Syracuse but you have to admire that the Tigers are willing to go on the road to take on another Power 5 opponent.
Both teams are undefeated heading into this one.
The Tigers have put the SEC on notice with back to back wins over ranked teams. This is a talented team that is capable of beating anyone on their schedule.
They are able to do that because they have the best running back in the country. Leonard Fournette runs around and through opponents in ways that are making people salivate.
LSU might be considered the best team in the nation if they could actually get production from their quarterback.
Brandon Harris is a running threat but he is averaging less than 100ypg through the air.
If they every get balance this team will be unstoppable.
They should be able to handle the Orange – see the spread – through their physical superiority. It might not be pretty at times but it has worked against better opponents.
LSU is trending upward. I like this team a lot but you always have to remember to not get too caught up in the hype.
The Orange have to be pretty pleased with the start to their season. At 3-0 they are already half way to becoming eligible for a bowl game. This will be a very steep test.
Don’t expect miracles.
The question that will be answered is how real is their run defense – currently ranked third in the nations giving up less than 50ypg.
If it is real they might be able to hang closer with LSU than expected. Their pass defense is terrible but the Tigers are far from built to exploit that kind of shortcoming.
The Orange are at home and their should be buzz with a top ranked team visiting. The Tigers don’t play a lot of noon starts so maybe the Orange catch them a little off guard.
If that is the case they are going to have really capitalize early because LSU’s best is a lot better than Syracuse’s.

I think there is a good chance LSU is a little sluggish in this one. I just don’t see it as being enough even though they are not a high flying team.

Unless Harris is a disaster look for the Tigers to outscore the Orange by a TD per quarter on the way to a win and cover.
