LSU has trended backwards in the SEC West standings for four consecutive seasons, going from first (2011) to second (2012) to third (2013) to fifth (2014).
One major reason for that type of trend is the SEC West schedule. It’s the toughest division in all of college football and is loaded with the best coaches and rosters in the country.
LSU fits the bill perfectly and Les Miles will have to traverse another nasty slate if he wants to get his Tigers back into SEC title contention.
