Rice isn’t having a very good year. It’s 1-10, and its only win came against an FCS school.
There are 130 FBS football programs, and the S&P+ ranks it 129th. That’s why sportsbooks have LSU as a 44-point favorite Saturday (Nov. 17) in Tiger Stadium.
This is all to say LSU should, by all means, win this game with ease. What that also means is LSU will likely have a chance to play some younger guys.
