LSU beat eight teams that were ranked at the time (the highest number inat least 39 years). Is that a little dubious, since final rankings are better indicators of team quality? Okay. LSU beat final No. 1 Alabama by three, final No. 4 Oregon by 13, final No. 5 Arkansas by 24, SEC East champion Georgia by 32, and the about-to-drop-70-on-Clemson West Virginia by 26.Otherwise, they splattered folks. The Tide were the only team to play LSU within a score.
