LSU beat Louisiana Tech on Saturday night. It wasn't pretty and the Tigers sill have a long way to go to get ready for the likes of Alabama and Georgia. But it's a "W" and that matters.

The Bayou Bengals are now #5 in the Associated Press Poll and #6 in the Coaches Poll. That's impressive considering I predicted  the Tigers would lose 6 games this season. I thought they would lose to Miami and Auburn.

Before the season started, I predicted the Tigers would go 6-6, but I'm changing that prediction now. I thought the Tigers would lose to LSU loses to Miami and Auburn along with losses to Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Texas A&M. I think this team ban beat Florida and Texas A&M. So my new predictions have the Tigers going 10-2 with losses on the road at Alabama on November 3rd and at Tiger Stadium on October 13th.
