We have reached week five of the season schedule and while most teams will be playing conference games thsi year, there is still a few games that will be non conference.
On of those games takes place at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge.
The Troy Trojans make the trip to take on the LSU Tigers. LSU has won the previous two match ups between the two teams with the last game taking place in 2008.
The Troy Trojans season has worked out exactly like most expected so far. Their first game was against Boise State, a team they were underdogs too and they lost by a final score of 24-13.
Since that point they have been favored by at least nine points in each of the last games, and they have won all three games, but they haven’t covered any of those games.
This game is going to be a real test for the Trojans though because not only are they going to Tiger Stadium to play this game, but it is at night, and that place can really get rocking at night.
The Trojans are led at quarterback Brandon Silvers who has had some pretty weird stats so far this year. He has thrown for over 1000 yards but only two touchdowns which is a very weird ratio.
They have been winning games though so it’ hasn’t concerned many people but at some point he needs to start throwing more touchdowns.
To win this game it’s going to come down to the defensive effort. They need to come out fast in this game and really try to slow down the Tigers early.
The best chance this team has to win is to jump out to a lead early and then try to hold on for dear life the rest of the game.
On the other side of this match up is the LSU Tigers who have had a nice season so far, except for a big slip up against Mississippi State in which they lost 37-7.
For some reason they seemed to forget how to play defense in that game and the offense couldn’t get rolling, and the loss was an ugly one.
In their last game they got the win against Syracuse which all that really matters but it really wasn’t a pretty win. They let a Syracuse team that they are much better then stick around too long and they only won the game by nine points when they were 21.5 points favorites.
The quarterback for the Tigers is Danny Etling who has looked decent so far this year. He comes into this game having thrown for 723 yards and three touchdowns.
He also hasn’t thrown any interceptions which is huge because that is something he has really struggled with in the past.
In this game it’s not just about winning but building momentum. They would really like this game to be a blowout if at all possible.
