Tennessee will attempt to erase all memories of last year's debacle in Baton Rouge when the Tigers visit Rocky Top on Saturday.
However, their chances of succeeding are slim and none.
Led by Heisman Trophy candidate Tyrann Mathieu on defense and fifth-year senior quarterback Jarrett Lee on offense, LSU comes into Neyland as the 17.5 point favorite and a favorite to win the SEC and national titles. The undefeated Tigers have already defeated four nationally ranked teams: Oregon, Mississippi State, West Virginia and Florida by a combined 82 points—147 to 65.
LSU's power run game, explosive wide receivers and dominate defense spell trouble for a young, depth-lacking Tennessee squad, which will be without its two best players.
