Happy Sunday, LSU fans! The Tigers started slow but kept their undefeated record alive as they topped Western Kentucky, 48-20. Now, the waiting game begins.
LSU will have a bye next Saturday before it faces off against No. 8 Alabama on Nov. 7. To say that game will be hyped is an understatement. But before we get to that, let’s get you caught up on all of Saturday’s news.
Here are four things to know:
