College Football Odds
Total: 44.5 points
This game has certainly been talked about heading into the season. It’s rare for an SEC team to travel north for anybody during the non-conference schedule, but LSU has now done it two years in a row, having gone into Syracuse last season and picking up a 10-point win.
LSU isn’t playing an official road game here, but Lambeau Field is a hell of a lot closer to Madison than it is to Baton Rouge. Les Miles and the Tigers are expecting a tough game and they are going to get it from the Badgers and their faithful.
The Tigers have a new defensive coordinator in Dave Aranda, who comes over from Wisconsin of all schools. That could play a role in this game today based on his knowledge of the Badger personnel.
Leonard Fournette and the Tigers have a legitimate national title contender this season, but they are going to have to win a game like this in order to help out that overall resume. The Tigers are going to rely on Fournette coming out of the backfield and rumbling for a ton of yards, but QB Brandon Harris is going to have to get them down the field a time or two in this one. The wide receivers for LSU are fantastic.
Both teams have a strong defense, but LSU has one of the best in the country.
