It wasn’t pretty as most losses are but this one stung a bit more than the others. LSU had the opportunity to get back to the .500 mark but an overtime kick ended it for the Tigers. The team sits at 4-6 overall and last in the SEC West.

A team that was No. 1 in the country just 21 games ago is now in danger of their first losing season since 1999. According to Paul Myerberg of USA TODAY Sports, the LSU Tigers joined Auburn, Florida, and Texas A&M as the biggest losers of the week.

Florida was the only one of the four SEC teams listed that actually won their game but they struggled massively with an FCS opponent in Samford. They gave up 42 first-half points and 52 overall. The other three did fall to SEC competition this week.

What USA TODAY Sports Says…

Arkansas’ 16-13 overtime win in Baton Rouge has LSU staring at its first losing season since 1999. Now 4-6, the Tigers get Louisiana-Monroe at home next Saturday before taking on A&M to avoid a 5-7 finish. The loss to the Razorbacks was this season in miniature: LSU’s offense gained 308 yards, the seventh time this season the Tigers have failed to crack 380 yards in a game. Remember when this program was home to be the most explosive offense in FBS history? Yeah, that was just two seasons ago.
