The Syracuse Orange (2-1) travel to Baton Rouge to face the #25 LSU Tigers (2-1) in Tiger Stafium this Saturday night looking to grab a statement non-conference victory
This contest kicks off at 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN 2 (also available on WatchESPN). Since we couldn’t all make it to Baton Rouge, you can come here to hang out with us during the game.
So what does the TNIAAM staff think will happen?
LSU 28 Syracuse 14
I think that we're going to get fooled by one close half here. LSU is superior and will do one thing to rebound from last week: run the foodlion ball down our foodlion throats. Syracuse hasn't done a great job stopping the run and and LSU will be down a premier RB, but will still have a great offensive line and a 4-5 star recruit tandem to run behind it. Last time this happened, LSU ran all over us, but a one dimensional offense will have moments of faltering. Coming out of the half, LSU's superior depth and talent will carry them to a pretty convincing victory.
LSU 31, Syracuse 10
LSU goes up early and just hammers the Syracuse offense. SU has a first quarter under 30 yards and slowly gets enough momentum to score. The Tigers are firing energy wise after losing last week, but make their mistakes as well.
LSU 27 Syracuse 17
The loss of Derrius Guice is big, but if Syracuse is without Erv Phillips, it’s not an even trade. The Orange need to get off to a strong start and keep the Tigers faithful quiet. If Syracuse can keep it close into the 4th quarter, the pressure is going to be on LSU not to lost. I think this game will be close, but the talent on the LSU side will be enough for them to escape with the win.
