The Tigers of LSU defeated Alabama handily on Saturday with a score of 46-41. The Crimson Tide were not themselves and committed way too many careless errors.
The Tiger offense led by one of the top quarterbacks in the nation, Joe Burrow, went down to Tuscaloosa and managed to produce 46 points!! That is extremely tough to do when you’re on the road in Bryant-Denny against a very stout defense. Everybody always talks about the passing game with Jamar Chase and Justin Jefferson. But LSU’s running game is very underrated with Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He had an amazing 7-yard run with 1:37 left in regulation to put LSU up by 12.
After this game, I think that Joe Burrow is the front runner for the Heisman. Burrow went 31/39 passing, 393 yards and had 3 TDs against Bama.
There are a lot of contenders this year that are competing for the Heisman. It is still very close and there is a lot of football left to be played. Also, injuries play a huge impact in outcome. Here are my predictions for the Heisman winner.
Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma QB
Joe Burrow, LSU QB
Justin Fields, Ohio State QB
A lot of people think Tua Tagovailoa will be in that top 3 or at the Number 1 spot but I don’t think Tua will ever get back to himself this year after his high ankle sprain against Tennessee. his explanation Comment your Heisman predictions and subscribe by entering your email on the right side!!
There are many great and important games during this third weekend of the college football season. There are interesting games in a variety of conferences this weekend, and here are my picks and predictions about what week three holds.
The first game that intrigues most of the college football fans is No. 12 LSU at No. 7 Auburn. This will be a very physical game in the trenches. Ed Orgeron’s front seven was very dominant in their win against Miami. But LSU linebacker Devin White has showed more greatness than any other player for the Tigers. Last year, he managed to produce a total of 133 tackles and 13.5 tackles for loss. But we’ll see how the young and inexperienced offensive line of Auburn will hold up against the talented LSU defense. But then comes the Auburn defensive line, and this changes the whole ball game. During College Football Sunday, the day after the Auburn vs. Washington game, Tom Luguinbill described the Auburn defensive line as “creatures”. The starting Auburn front 4 is composed of Nick Coe, Marlon Davidson, Dontavius Russell, and Derrick Brown. I do not think the LSU offensive line can hold this incredible and scary defense. I also think the Auburn offense will be too strong for the LSU defense. I think Auburn will defeat LSU 27-13.
The next match up is Ohio State and TCU. College Gameday will be covering this game on Saturday morning. This means there is a ton of hype around this game. However, this prediction is pretty simple in my view. I think Dwayne Haskins, Mike Weber, and J.K. Dobbins will dominate the TCU defense. I also believe that the Horned Frogs will not be able to move the football against the very good Buckeye defense. I think the final score will be 28-7, in Ohio State’s favor.
The third game that will be interesting is Alabama and Ole Miss. This has always been a close game in the past. But I think this will be closer than people think. I think it will be a battle of the offenses. I think both defenses will have their worst game of the season. I predict the Alabama defense will come up clutch and make a big stop and then Tua Tagovailoa will lead his team to big touchdown to put the game away. I think the Crimson Tide will beat the Rebels 32- 21.
Saturday, June 9, is game one of the Gainesville Super Regional between Auburn and Florida. The matchup between the two MLB first rounders Casey Mize (AUB) and Brady Singer (FLA) will be must-see TV. The Auburn junior managed to have a 2.95 ERA while being 10-5 in the win/loss column. Meanwhile, Singer started 14 games for the Gators and put up a 2.27 season ERA.
These teams are pretty even as of right now. The injury of JJ Schwarz against Miss State really seemed to be the negative turning point for the Gators. Florida third baseman Jonathon India has made multiple errors in the postseason that he would not of made earlier in the year. They were run ruled by LSU who are now out of the tournament. They also barely escaped their own regional with Jacksonville, FAU, and Columbia.
On the other hand, the Auburn Tigers are probably the hottest team in the country right now. The Tigers scored 40 runs and never trailed in the Raleigh Regional. Auburn’s first baseman, Josh Anthony, has really picked up his game in the postseason. Anthony went 4-5 (batting) with a pair of singles and two doubles in the regional final against the NC State Wolfpack.
Will the Florida Gators survive a best 2 out of 3 series against the red hot Auburn Tigers?
Or will the Tigers take down the No. 1 seed, in a somewhat surprising fashion?
It seems like every year, LSU dominates the SEC Tournament in Hoover, no matter what happens during the regular season. The Tigers made it to the semifinals in 2015, the semifinals in 2016, and took home the tournament trophy in 2017.
The Tigers are currently scheduled to play Ole Miss is the 2018 SEC tournament championship game on Sunday, May 27 at 3:00. After going 15-15 in regular season conference play and being a bubble team for the first time in a while, LSU had to prove that they are an NCAA tournament team.
There was a lot of pressure on the Tigers to win the first game of the tournament against a red hot Mississippi State team. The Bulldogs had just come off a 3-game series sweep against the No.1 Florida Gators. LSU received lots of support in Hoover of what seemed like a home game. But like always, the Tigers handled pressure very well while topping Mississippi State 8-5.
But, in the second round, the Tigers were stopped in their in the tracks when they saw the Gators in their way. Florida defeated LSU 4-3 in very nail-biting game. But the Tigers weren’t going home to Baton Rouge just yet.
LSU now had to face South Carolina in an elimination game. The purple and gold sent the Gamecocks home in 12 innings when pitcher Todd Peterson hit an RBI double to left field to put his team ahead in his first career at-bat.
Now the Tigers had a chance to redeem themselves against Florida. And they did just that. They run ruled the Gators in seven innings with a score of 11-0.
LSU ace pitcher, Zach Hess, totally dominated the Arkansas Razorbacks in the semifinals with 7 strikeouts and only giving up 1 hit in 7 innings of work. This would send them to the championship game.
LSU owns the SEC tournament. I think it’s because of the fan support that the team receives from their fans. It’s fair to say that LSU baseball fans best support their team during neutral and away games. Why do you think the LSU Tigers consistently succeed in Hoover? Please comment your answers below!
Many experts said that the Kentucky Wildcats had to win at least one game in the SEC Baseball Tournament to get off the bubble and solidify a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
However, that did not happen. Auburn defeated the Wildcats 4-3 in 11 innings on Tuesday.
Kentucky finished 34-22 overall and 13-17 in conference play. According to D1Baseball.com, they have an RPI of 29. The Cats climbed into the top 10 at the beginning of the year while starting 14-2. But the team finished the season 20-20 while battling injuries.
Some key series wins were against Texas Tech, Georgia, Mississippi State and Auburn (regular season). Some key series losses were against Tennessee and Alabama.
I think that Kentucky should be in because it is a team that can explode offensively. Three Kentucky stars Kole Cottam, Tristan Pompey and Luke Becker together have a .324 season batting average.
When Monday rolls around, there are going to be a lot of nerves and curious minds in Lexington. What do you think? Should Kentucky get in? Please comment below!
On Saturday, January 20, the No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners took on the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Oklahoma’s Trae Young had a career high with 48 points. Trae Young had a couple of clutch three pointers within five minutes and was 12-12 from the foul line. OSU’s Kendall Smith drained a three pointer with 6.2 seconds left in regulation. During the last tics of overtime, Trae Young sprinted up the court. He bricked his last second shot. OSU fans stormed the court.
