Fresh after getting spanked in the BCS Championship game last January, the LSU Tigers have the slight advantage on the college football betting line heading into the 2012 season. Can new quarterback Zach Mettenberger and trusted coach Les Miles be the ones who help them cash in?
All things considered, last season’s collapse in the ultimate bowl game was but a blip in the program’s radar. This year, with an abundance of returning starters and a favorable schedule, the club may even improve upon their No. 2 finish.
According to Bovada’s college football odds, the Tigers sit second on the BCS futures with 5/1 odds of winning the national championship. The figure may trail USC’s 7/2 total, but tops rival Alabama’s 11/2 preseason mark.
Will Mettenberger be enough of an improvement over last year’s quarterback tandem to push the program over the hump? The SEC giants have reason to be optimistic. Still, considering the depth of contenders poised to make runs at the nation’s top spot, the 2012 campaign promises to be an intriguing one.
Think a home matchup against the Crimson Tide, and one that follows a bye week no less, be the difference down the stretch?
