Interesting LSU and Oregon Links:

With the end of Spring football near it is time to start wrapping up the "what we have learned about the 2011 LSU Fighting Tigers in Spring" and start paying attention to the Tigers first opponent - the Oregon Ducks. Matt Hayes of The Sporting News just deemed the Tigers preseason #1. (see the full article here)  In that same article Hayes ranks LSU's last opponent - Texas A&M, #8.  Gig'em Aggies!  I went to grad school at A&M after LSU.  LSU's SEC West archrival - Alabama is ranked #5 and LSU's first opponent - Oregon is ranked #3.

I have just added Oregon Duck links and a Oregon Football News tracker in the bottom half of  the column to the right.

Both Oregon and LSU have their sites on a National Championship and when these two meet sparks are going to fly.  LSU should be the hardest challenge the Ducks face until they meet Stanford and USC in back-to-back games in the middle of November.  The Ducks may prove to be LSU's hardest challenge also but there will be very few weeks that LSU does not face serious opponents.  While The Sporting News article is good news for Tigers fans and Duck fans alike, it is a bit early to start seriously breaking down the big game.  However, it is not too early to start looking through the coverage of each team.  Here are some interesting links to what's going on with the Tigers and Ducks:

I am just starting to gather info on the LSU - Oregon Game.  There will be much more to come as the big game draws nearer.

I like the each side point of view story line..That you are Giving your readers..About the Oregon vs LSU match up..That will begin LSU 2011 college football season.
The more information about the two team the better.
Sporting News,ESPN College Football,are picking LSU #-1 to begin this 2011 football season..So of course the first football game against the Pac-10 leading power-Oregon,is a very important college football game.
