LSU vs. Tulane


LSU takes on long-time rival Tulane on Halloween night, the 50th anniversary of Billy Cannon's famous run against Ole Miss, in what appears the be the last match-up for a while between the Tigers and Green Wave. The two schools ended their 10-year home and home contract this year, after LSU only played in the Superdome once since the agreement was signed.

Tulane officials are none too happy with LSU not wanting to play in New Orleans, but there's really no incentive for LSU to give up a home game each year to play in a smaller stadium in New Orleans. So look for more games against other in state or Sun Belt teams in the near future (McNeese has been scheduled for the first time).

This week's game appears to be a tune up for the Tigers as many fans are looking ahead to their trip to Alabama next week for a game that will likely decided the SEC West champion. The team shouldn't overlook Tulane, with this being a rivalry game, but this one shouldn't be close.

LSU should be able to run a similar gameplan that they did last week against Auburn and continue to show improvement on offense. Tulane is really struggling this year and this one should be over fairly quickly.
