There has been a lot of talk about LSU's football program this week, after receiving their worst defeat to Mississippi State in program history last week. Questions around Head Coach Ed Orgeron, Offensive Coordinator Matt Canada, and even questions around Derrius Guice and a Range Rover. All things that fans would brush off with a 3-0 or 4-0 team ranked in the Top 10...but that's not this LSU team.

Even with the questions swirling, the Tigers are three touchdown favorites going into tonight's game in Death Valley. Here's a quick overview of tonight's game against Syracuse from the Louisiana Radio Network:

"LSU looks to get back on track on Saturday when the Tigers host Syracuse. The Bayou Bengals allowed over 400 yards of total offense in last week’s blowout loss to Mississippi State. Syracuse is averaging 491-yards per game. 

LSU will be without veteran defensive back Ed Paris. Head Coach Ed Orgeron says Paris suffered what looks to be a serious knee injury in practice this week. But running back Derrius Guice is expected to play, after he was ruled out earlier this week because of an unknown injury."
