Besides newbies Arkansas and South Carolina, we've probably played them as few as anyone,except Vanderbilt and maybe Georgia in the SEC. A lot of their wins did come in the 30's and 40's, but they've still had the upper hand in the 80's and 90's,too. Since 1960 Tennessee leads the series 8-6-2, so its been somewhat competitive in the last half century. Tennessee's high moments haven't always come against poor or bad LSU teams,either. In 1959 Tennessee beat then #1 LSU 14-13 and then lost their last three games to go 5-4-1. In 1964 Tennessee came to Baton Rouge to face #7 LSU and came away with a 3-3 tie en route to a 4-5-1 season. In 1982 after Hilliard,James and Risher got us on the '82 map in Gainesville the week before, 12 pt underdog Tennessee tied LSU 24-24. We finished 11th in the nation, they finished 6-5-1. Point being in this limited,but odd series, for whatever reason Tennessee brings its "A Game" to play LSU. Few people outside of the Tennessee team are giving them much a chance this weekend. I'd love to see LSU just crush them from the git-go (plus growing up pulling for Vandy, I loathe these jerks :winkand win going away. But the team needs to focus and work on the obvious and continue with the proven or history could repeat itself.
