Beat writers predict LSU to blow out Syracuse

first_imgSam Blum (3-0): LSU 35 Syracuse 7Gold StandardSyracuse’s perfectly imperfect start to the season has a reality check with a blowout loss to Louisiana State. Syracuse’s defense will keep it close for the first half, but it will be Tigers fans drinking the Dome dry by game’s end.Jesse Dougherty (2-1): LSU 49, Syracuse 10MeowSyracuse scratches for a touchdown and field goal once LSU pumps the brakes, but it’s way too late. Leonard Fournette does a few Leonard Fournette things and, well, that’s a wrapMatt Schneidman (3-0): LSU 42, Syracuse 10UntamedA once-fifth-stringer now starting for Syracuse plus the best running back in the country playing for LSU equals nothing good for the Orange. Leonard Fournette will be relaxing on the sideline well before this game is over and the Tigers prove SU can’t take down a big boy just yet.Paul Schwedelson (3-0): LSU 42, Syracuse 3LS-PhewThe only successful thing that can come out of this game for Syracuse is that its remaining quarterbacks stay healthy, providing a silver lining to a game that will otherwise be out of control.
