After making it to the BCS National Championship Game in the 2011 season, LSU's 2012 campaign ended on a sour note.
In a shocking upset in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Tigers lost to Clemson, 25-24. The defense that had carried the team in 2011 allowed Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd to pass for 346 yards and two touchdowns as LSU was outscored, 12-0, in the fourth quarter.
The Tigers could stand to improve on offense the most, though. LSU averaged 29.8 points per game in 2012, good for 59th in the nation and eighth in the SEC. That included scoring six points against Florida and 17 points against Alabama.
