Howdy, These are my thoughts on this Saturday's LSU-Oregon match-up. CBS Sports' 6 pundits all pick Oregon, btw..and Vegas has LSU as a 2.5 point fav.. Oregon wins if: Their offense is in mid-season (or even 2nd game form), LSU's recent off-field distractions impair the Tiger's focus. LSU wins if: Graduation has taken as big a toll on the Duck's linemen as some sources claim, LSU's defense is as good as some pundits believe. Some points to consider: While this is a virtual home game for LSU, it is not being played in Tiger stadium..and LSU in Tiger stadium at night is very tough to beat. Also, Oregon may feel as if they've a score to settle with the SEC..and they've seemingly got the talent to do it. I'll predict my alma mater -LSU-to win. What about you?
