OUR PREDICTION: It would appear as though LSU was overrated coming into the year. The Tigers started their season off fast, picking up two straight wins before getting waxed on the road by a Mississippi State team that was crushed last week by Georgia. LSU didn't come close to covering the spread as a sizable home favorite last week against Syracuse and I'll gladly take the points with a Troy team that has not allowed more than 24 points in any game this season.
