>Tennessee vs LSU

>If you believe the national pundits and “experts”, Tennessee should lose to LSU. In fact, the impression I get from them is that we shouldn’t even bother playing the game since it’s assume LSU will win.

Now, I’m not a betting man, but if I were here are a few trends I’d consider when it comes this game.

  • LSU has only won one time in Neyland Stadium.
  • LSU hasn’t played well on the road this year in big games–they lost to both Auburn and Florida.
  • They have a good defense and a decent offense–but that offense has self-destructed at times this year on the road. Again see the point above about losing to Florida and Auburn.

I’m not saying it will be easy and I think this could be a close game. And a lot of it depends on how mobile Eric Ainge is and how much that injury to his ankle hampers him. But I just have a feeling that the Vols will find a way to win–and should we keep it close, Tennessee is becoming legendary in the fourth quarter this year.

My predicton: UT 24, LSU 20
