LSU Meets South Carolina Tonight

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IOctober 18, 2008

Last year, LSU beat the South Carolina Gamecocks 28-16 on September 22nd. The signature play of that game was a fake field goal which started with Matt Flynn pitching the ball over his shoulder (look Mom, no eyes) and ended with Colt David sprinting into the end zone.

The Ol’ Ball Coach, Steve Spurrier, is known for his trickery and today should be no different, unless LSU beats him to the trick plays first like they did last year.

LSU is coming off of a disheartening 51-31 loss at the hands of Florida. Ironically, the last time that they got beat so bad was by Florida who was then coached by no other than Steve Spurrier. This is LSU’s fourth SEC game in a row (they have played against Mississippi State, Auburn, and Florida, though not in that order).

LSU needs a win, or rather, they have to win today if they want to continue their pursuit of the BCS National Championship Game. Florida and Georgia, both heavily picked to play in the game each have one loss but its going to be hard to beat them again so LSU better not lose again either.
