David Ching with ESPN.com broke down LSU's non-conference 2015 schedule in this ESPN article:
quote:

LSU Tigers
2015 nonconference opponents:
McNeese State, at Syracuse, Eastern Michigan, Western Kentucky

This isn't the weakest nonconference slate among the SEC's likely playoff contenders, but it's not going to help the Tigers' playoff chances much. Facing FCS McNeese State, a relatively new FBS program in Western Kentucky and MAC cellar dweller Eastern Michigan won't impress anyone on the selection committee. A trip to Syracuse is somewhat ambitious, although the Orange will need to be better than the .500 club they usually are for that game to compel committee members. In addition to its SEC West slate, LSU will visit South Carolina and host Florida, which could help its cause.
The Tigers beat Wisconsin, Sam Houston State, ULM, and New Mexico State this season.

To hell with non-conference. If LSU wins the west and SECCG, they're in.

OOC schedules only matter for non-SEC schools trying to get in the playoff. We prove ourselves in conference games.

based on what i'm seeing happening with FSU, i think LSU should schedule directional U for every OOC game

How's it hurting Mississippi State this year?

In my estimation, it will hurt us as much as it did for FSU, TCU and Oregon this year. They're sitting decent.

Why don't we just play Southern? It would still be a crappy game but their band is awesome
