BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU All-America and Butkus Award-winning linebacker Devin White says he has decided to enter the 2019 NFL draft and forgo his remaining season of eligibility to play for the Tigers.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — There will be no self-proclaimed national championship for Central Florida this year.
Just some jokes at the Knights' expense.
LSU snapped UCF's 25-game winning streak with a 40-32 victory at the Fiesta Bowl on Tuesday, spoiling the small-conference school's bid for more recognition. Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow dissected the Knights' secondary for 394 yards and four touchdowns to end UCF's nation-best 25-game winning streak.
LSU's Devin White is the Butkus Award winner as the best linebacker in the country.
The winner was announced Wednesday. White is the first LSU player to win the Butkus in its 34-year history and the third straight winner from a Southeastern Conference school. Roquan Smith of Georgia won it last season and Reuben Foster of Alabama was the winner in 2016.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Southeastern Conference champion Alabama has a league-high 12 players on the all-conference team selected by SEC coaches.
Georgia had seven players selected on the team. Missouri and South Carolina each had five all-SEC selections.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — LSU coach Ed Orgeron hopes coaches will band together and demand changes to NCAA football's targeting rule and how it is enforced.
Orgeron's suggestion comes just days after a target foul called last weekend LSU linebacker Devin White, a penalty which triggered White's suspension for the first half of the fourth-ranked Tigers' next game against No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 3.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Boos rained down from the Tiger Stadium stands, even as quarterback Joe Burrow kneeled to close out No. 5 LSU's latest convincing victory over a ranked opponent.
It was an unusual scene spawned by an unfortunate play that could carry considerable implications going forward.
Citrus Bowl: Notre Dame (9-3) vs. LSU (9-3) at Orlando, Fla., Monday, 1 p.m. ET (ABC)
The Associated Press has been honoring college football's best with an All-America team since 1925. This season, the AP released its first preseason All-America team and last week a midseason team. The full three-team All-America selections are unveiled in December. The eighth installment of the weekly All-America watch features an LSU linebacker drawing lofty comparisons, a member of Miami's Turnover Chain gang and the motor of FAU's high-scoring offense.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU is entering an important three-game stretch for first-year coach Ed Orgeron and the man who hired him, athletic director Joe Alleva.
While a loss at No. 1 Alabama last weekend dropped the Tigers out of the AP Top 25 and virtually ended hopes of a Southeastern Conference championship, a strong run to close out the season could engender considerable confidence in the direction of the program.
No. 24 LSU (5-2, 2-1 SEC) at Mississippi (3-3, 1-2), Saturday, 7:15 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Line: LSU by 7.
Series record: LSU leads 60-41-4.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
LSU was wobbling after a loss to Troy a few weeks ago, but back-to-back wins over Florida and Auburn have the Tigers back in the national rankings. A win over Ole Miss would further solidify the program's momentum. The Rebels want to build off of last week's 57-35 win over Vanderbilt.
No. 25 Auburn (5-1, 3-0 SEC) at LSU (4-2, 1-1), Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)
Line: Auburn by 7.
Series record: LSU leads 28-22-1.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Auburn aims to continue its climb up the rankings and keep pace with top-ranked Alabama in the SEC West race. LSU, which has been blown out by Mississippi State and lost to mid-major Troy, could regain credibility with a second straight league victory and improve confidence in the program's direction under first-year coach Ed Orgeron.
