The College Football season is nearly here as the LSU Football team will kick off its season in 53 days against the USC Trojans in Las Vegas. We'd be lying if we said we weren't counting down the days until the College Football season begins as plenty of excitement comes with the expanded 12 team College Football Playoff.

The LSU Football team has a loaded schedule as they'll face strong non-conference opponents like USC and UCLA while the additions of Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC has made the conference much stronger top to bottom.

In conference, the LSU Tigers will have a tough schedule which comes as no surprise as every year in the SEC it's difficult to find easy games. On3 ranked their top ten SEC Games this season and it's no surprise that LSU made an appearance.

The Tigers while appearing twice on the list can certainly have some gripes about how many games made the cut and where they were ranked. Oklahoma Vs Tennessee will be a solid matchup but, LSU vs Ole Miss is certainly a better matchup. If LSU is able to beat USC in week one, both teams will likely enter the matchup 6-0 with the winner putting themselves into great position to earn a bid into the College Football Playoff.

The Game between LSU and Alabama will also be a game that is likely much better and more important than Oklahoma Vs Tennessee. The last time these two teams faced off in Death Valley, the Tigers pulled off an overtime win against the Crimson Tide which decided the SEC West. This past season, LSU was in the game until Jayden Daniels suffered a concussion which knocked him out of the game.

This season should be an LSU Tigers resurgence

Last year, LSU Football suffered their losses due to an awful defensive performance leading to Matt House's firing. The LSU Football team should be much improved with a new defensive staff led by Blake Baker and top assistants Corey Raymond and Bo Davis. LSU also has the benefit of playing its hardest conference games at home as they'll host Ole Miss and Alabama their two conference losses from 2023.
