Les Miles’ days as LSU head football coach appear to be numbered.

With 224 yards on the season, he stood No. 2 within the Southeastern Conference in dashing with 112 yards a recreation. Then he tore ligaments in his knee against Idaho, had surgical procedure and was lost for the season.

South Carolina pulled the game out late profitable 48-34, however the Cocks are still a metaphor for the rest of the East Division, a thriller of inconsistent mediocrity.
LSU’s protection played very properly however bought almost no help from an offense that regressed considerably after showing to have improved in the ultimate stretch of the common season. They allowed 445 yards however stopped Clemson the primary three times it had the ball in the second half. Clemson ran 34 plays within the fourth quarter against a gassed Tiger protection.
