    Can anyone remember opening against an OOC oppponent of this quality with national title hopes on a bigger stage?? This has to be one of, or at least have the potential to be one of the biggest openers in LSU history. LSU!

    #1 Nebraska 1976 ended in tie 6-6

    id put the group of A&M openers at the top due to intensity/proximity.

    So basically it has been a long time since we opened with a
    Game of this magnitude when the program was at the level it is now

    This is the biggest season opener in about 25-30+ years. Both teams will be top 5+ , this game is considered the best non-conference game of the year for ALL non-conference games in 2011. Geaux Tigers!!!!

    Not only is this a huge first game of the season, it could be the biggest out of conference match up of the entire regular season.
