The LSU Tigers kicked off the 2018 season with one of the most dominating performances in the nation last week, as they thoroughly dismantled the Miami Hurricanes by 33-17 margin in Dallas.
The game wasn’t as close as the score indicated, as the Tigers led wire-to-wire, and had a 30 point lead going into the fourth quarter.
The Tigers now head back to Baton Rouge for their first home game of the season, as they’ll host their in-state foes, the Southeastern Louisiana Lions.
LSU has won 12 straight home openers, and were victorious in their only other game against the Lions, picking up a 48-7 victory in November 1949.
According to the LSU game notes, the campuses are separated by just 47 miles, so SELA is the closest opponent LSU has ever played. How fun!
The Tigers will be without K’Lavon Chaisson going forward, as the sophomore linebacker suffered a season-ending injury last week in Dallas. This game will be a good way for Ed Orgeron and Dave Aranda to see how they want to replace Chaisson before the schedule picks up next week.
