Patterson: LSU won't win another Power 5 game this season


LSU's hopes of clinching a bowl berth are dwindling, and Ed Orgeron's time as their head coach is waning.

Two years removed from a national championship, the Tigers are in freefall. Their 41-21 blowout loss to No. 16 Kentucky on Saturday night in Lexington dropped them to 3-3 on the season, and reaffirmed that the school will soon cut ties with Orgeron and begin searching for a successor.

"Three out of their last four games are against Alabama, Texas A&M, Arkansas. And the LSU team that I see right now isn't going to win any of those games," CBS Sports college analyst Chip Patterson told The DA Show on Monday. "It's possible that this LSU team's only win the rest of the season is UL Monroe in late November.

"That's an unacceptable record for a team that's recruited at this level and assembled this kind of talent. That's a program that's just not doing a good job maximizing the resources and commitment you have. They've got Florida coming up this weekend, then Ole Miss. I don't think LSU is going to win another Power 5 game this season."

LSU was dominated by Kentucky in all three phases. They allowed 475 total yards of offense, and Wildcats halfbacks Chris Rodriguez and Kavosiey Smoke combined for 251 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. Although LSU entered Week 6 ranked 128th out of 130 Division I programs in rushing, junior halfback Tyrion Davis-Price racked up a career-high 147 yards on 22 carries with two scores. Their lone silver lining.

The Tigers will host No. 20 Florida (4-2) in a Week 7 conference matchup on Saturday afternoon. Since 2000, LSU hasn't finished a single season with a losing record.
