What meaningful game has Iowa even been in recently? I just don't think LSU goes to Florida and plays at 100%.
And Mettenberger is a very big loss, and it could be the difference as they need to stretch the field with those 2 great wide receivers. If LSU shows up to really get after it, they would win by 3 TDs, but I think Iowa keeps this close, and could even pull the upset.
Iowa +7 Two unit play for me
You are spot on my friend, being a LSU alumni and a big Tiger supporter, Les is terrible in big games and Mettenberger is a huge loss but Jennings is the man right now, the future as to say, so in my opinion Jennings playing is a good thing. Manage the game is it, all he will be asked to do, so that means unleashing the power running game with a stable of very good running backs, watch for Hill to have a big game.
Who wins and covers this game depends on what you are saying, will LSU show and do they really care? They have the talent to overwhelm a team that's for sure!
Never forget guys, Les Miles is an idiot and can finds ways to blow big games!
Put me down for LSU -7.5 and under the total / office pool only!
Geaux Tigers !!
