Another neutral game that is truly neutral. No. 3 Oregon and No. 4 LSU will meet in Texas to see who is top dog.
A couple of weeks ago, this would've been without a doubt, the best opening week game period. Two perennial powerhouses meeting on neutral ground to settle the score. Classic!
Unfortunately, LSU lost two players to arrest, including starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson. This definitely sets them back a couple of notches.
Given LSU's situation, I have to give the advantage to Oregon. They have Heisman hopeful LaMichael James on their side and were the Nation Championship runner ups last season.
If the Mad Hatter manages to pull out a win in this one, LSU will be a legitimate contender for the National Title, no matter who they have at quarterback. If Oregon wins, they get bragging rights against the SEC.
It'll be a hard fought game, and you'd be crazy to miss it.
