LSU, much like Alabama, would need a major upset loss for it not to make a BCS bowl. Two SEC teams are a given for this year’s BCS bowl games. If the Tigers win the November 5th game against the Crimson Tide, they become an official lock.
After their game versus Alabama, they finish their schedule with games versus Western Kentucky, Ole Miss and Arkansas. It would not be a stretch to say the Tigers could send their scout team to play Western Kentucky and Ole Miss and still win.
The only game they could possibly lose would be against Arkansas. However, the Razorbacks do not appear to be on the same level as the Tigers at this point. It is a rivalry game that Arkansas has had recent success in. The problem is that this is not your typical LSU team. This team takes no games off.
Like Alabama, the only way I do not see the Tigers in a BCS bowl is if they lose to Alabama and the Tide are upset in the SEC championship game.
