The 2019 LSU Football team was the best challenger that taught us the least about ‘Bama
In 2019, the LSU Football team had one of the greatest seasons that we’ve ever seen out of any college football program. Sadly, they would regress a year later but Ed Orgeron’s 2019 team was unbeatable.
The Tigers ran through their entire schedule, taking down 9th-ranked Texas, 7th-ranked Florida, 9th-ranked Auburn, 3rd-ranked Alabama, 4th-ranked Georgia, 4th-ranked Oklahoma, and 3rd-ranked Clemson. You read that right — LSU took down seven top-10 teams during their season.
The Tigers did this while averaging 568.4 offensive yards per game and 48.4 points per contest, both of which are statistics that led the NCAA. More specifically, their 48.4 points per game were the only total that surpassed Alabama’s 47.2.
At the end of the day, the only thing LSU taught Jimbo Fisher is that you have to have one of the greatest college football teams of all time if you want a chance of beating Alabama and winning a national championship.
The Texas A&M Football team will likely attempt to do this with a more balanced unit, using defense to take down certain opponents. If they can keep ‘Bama under 30 points in 2021, their odds will look much higher.
