2015 LSU Season Preview
The Tigers won 10 games yet again in 2013, and they’ll be hungry for more this time around. While LSU was able to beat up on Florida and Texas A&M last season, they were beaten badly by Alabama and lost close ones against Ole Miss and Georgia. The Tigers will be without Zach Mettenberger, Jeremy Hill and Odell Beckham this season as all are now in the NFL, but Les Miles was sure to restock the cupboard with lots of talent at the skilled positions. Leonard Fournette should be a force coming out of the backfield, while Brandon Harris will likely battle Anthony Jennings for the starting QB spot. Travin Dural will be joined by newcomers Trey Quinn and Malachi Dupre, who both figure to catch a lot of balls for LSU this season. The Tigers kick off the season against Wisconsin at NRG Stadium in Houston before heading home for four straight home games. They’ll be on the road against Auburn on Oct. 4 and home against rival Ole Miss on Oct. 25. The big game against Alabama is at Tiger Stadium on Nov. 8 and we all know how much that game can shape the national title chase for both teams. The Tigers will end the season with two road games at Arkansas and Texas A&M.

LSU Tigers Football at Tiger Stadium Address: W Stadium Rd, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 70802
Tiger Stadium holds over 92,000 spectators, and, also known as "Death Valley", is considered one of, if not the, toughest places to play football as a visitor in the country, giving the LSU Tigers an incredible home field advantage. Named by the Sporting News as the best place to attend a college football game and by ESPN as the best pre-game party in college football, attending a game at LSU is an experience not to be missed by college football fans. Pre-game tailgating at LSU constitutes the biggest party in Baton Rouge besides Mardi Gras. The LSU Tigers home bench is on the Tiger Stadium sideline with sections 100-106. Tiger Stadium parking information is covered in our Tigers event guide.
The Battle for the Golden Boot, this big-time SEC rivalry was first played in 1901 and awards the winner a, you guessed it, Golden Boot Trophy. The “Ice Bowl” was the 1947 Cotton Bowl game between the two schools that ended with a 0-0 tie, mostly due to the terrible winter weather. No matter what it’s like outside, LSU vs. Arkansas is always an amazing game for fans of both sides.
Two giants of the SEC meeting up every year in either Tiger Stadium or Bryant-Denny Stadium will deliver considerable hype – and these two schools tend to exceed expectations every time. We’ve seen #1 vs. #2 games in the regular season and as a national title game. Bama leads the series all time by a considerable margin, but LSU always comes to play and outside of the last two seasons, the Tigers have had the upper hand post-2000.
Over the years this SEC rivalry has had conference title as well as national title implications, and the Magnolia Bowl continues to be a big one on the schedule for both schools. Between the ’59 Halloween Night Run and the 2009 unexplicable clock management issues, there’s enough history in this matchup to write a book about.
LSU in the BCS National Championship, Bowl Games, and SEC Championship

There is arguably no team with higher expectations for conference titles in the SEC than the Louisiana State Tigers.
