Will LSU Win The SEC In 2024 With Nick Saban Gone? + NFLSU Showing Out In The Playoffs




LSU Football has been racking up dub after dub this offseason. Brian Kelly’s been putting in work, locking in the No.1 quarterback, running back and wide receiver in 2025 and bringing in guys like Blake Baker and Bo Davis to elevate the defense. And now, luck seems to be on his side with the retirement of Nick Saban. Alabama players have started to enter the transfer portal, including wide receiver Isaiah Bond; and it’s only a matter of time before recruits begin to flip. As the Alabama coaching search progresses, can LSU sneak in to poach some of the recruits they’ll lose? And can LSU win the SEC in 2024 without the Alabama powerhouse?

LSU was the only school with three players on the Wooden Award Midseason Top-25 Watchlist. Angel Reese, Aneesah Morrow, and Mikaylah Williams made the list as LSU’s top-three scorers. Angel is averaging 19.8 points per game, Aneesah averages 18.5, and Mikaylah 16.9. They’re strong candidates for the 2024 John R. Wooden Award Women’s Player of the Year.

The nation’s No. 1 scoring defense had no answer for the nation’s top offense. The Tigers took down Texas A&M 87-70, with all five starters scoring in double figures. Aneesah Morrow led the Tigers in scoring with 21 points, adding eight rebounds and two steals. Angel Reese recorded her eighth double-double of the season with 20 points and 18 rebounds. Hailey Van Lith scored 14, Mikaylah Williams 16, and Flau’Jae Johnson scored 10. LSU will be back in action on Sunday at Auburn.

The men’s basketball team is chasing their fifth-straight win this weekend against some tough competition. They’re playing at No. 16 Auburn tomorrow at 5 pm on the SEC Network. LSU is currently 2-0 in conference play, and so is Auburn.

LSU’s football season may be finished, but there are still some former Tigers on the field! Actually, quite a few. There are 27 former LSU players in the NFL Playoffs that start this weekend. 14 of those players are on active rosters, nine on practice squads, and four on injured reserve. They’ll start things off with wild-card weekend on Saturday.

The No. 5 nationally ranked LSU Gymnastics team is set to compete in ESPN’s first-ever invitational, the Sprouts Farmers Market Collegiate Quad Meet, on Saturday, January 13 at 3 p.m. CT in the Maverik Center.

The early-season quad meet features four of the top-ranked teams in the country, who all made up last year’s Final Four. In the meet, LSU will take on No. 1 Oklahoma, No. 2 Utah and No. 12 UCLA on the national stage as the competition will air on ABC.
