And yes, I realize the teams may be approaching this game differently than the fans. Still think Clemson will be more "excited" to be playing us than vice versa
Absolutely ! If the LSU players have the same mindset as a lot of our fans, then the motivation factor might now be there. After LSU lost a heartbreaker to Alabama, the Tigers have struggled to put teams away.
You play to win the game ! Hopefully, our Tigers, will finish exams and get excited about playing a quality opponent. A top 10 finish would be nice.
