Let’s change this preview up a little bit because this game is going to be a rout, and I’m not going to waste your time with all kinds of fancy stats and numbers.

  • LSU is going to win the game.
  • Ed Orgeron went to Northwestern State from 1980-83
  • When LSU wins, it will be their 800th victory in program history, making them the fourth SEC program to cross that bridge (Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia).
  • Joe Burrow leads the nation in passing touchdowns this season with nine. He also became the first LSU quarterback to complete 20+ passes in five straight games after last week’s win over Texas.
  • LSU is 11-0 all-time against Northwestern State.
  • Northwestern State suffered a 33-7 defeat last week to Division II Midwestern State.
