The loss to Alabama last week knocked LSU out of the SEC West title race, but the Tigers still have a lot to play, according to head coach Brian Kelly.

With three games remaining in the regular season, plus a bowl game, the Tigers can finish with ten wins this season.

Back-to-back ten-win seasons is LSU's goal right now, and Kelly said the potential accomplishment would help the program on its journey from "good" to "great and elite."

"This week will be the same," Kelly said. "If we want to be elite, we have to be consistent. We won ten games last year. You need to win ten again. That's in front of you."

"You have an opportunity to win ten games again this season. And if you want to start closing the gap towards being elite, then back-to-back ten-win seasons starts that."

"It's a challenge to our football team in terms of how you want this program to continue to grow. It's on your shoulders. You have an opportunity to continue to get better. Coaches need to get better, and players clearly need to get better."

"This is a great opportunity, playing a really good opponent at home. And you have a chance to move from a good team to a great team."
LSU plays Florida this Saturday at 6:30 p.m. CT on the SEC Network.

After the Gators, the Tigers will host Georgia State, followed by the regular season finale vs. Texas A&M in Tiger Stadium on Thanksgiving weekend.

Do you think LSU will finish with ten wins this season?

Avoiding a let down?

We have the best offense in the NCAA and our three losses are to 3 top 10 teams one of which is undefeated. And we lost to Bama after a dirty hit knocked out the best QB in college football.

It’s not like we’re losing to cream puffs. Our players still get to compete on national TV and we can still get a solid bowl game selection if we win out.

How about putting the best players in the best position to produce for you. Works on offense, but, for some unknown facking reason, we can’t do that on defense. Our defense is a shell of its former self. And I get the injuries, but this is pathetic.
