Rivalry week?

Remember when LSU and Tulane were actual rivals?

OK, you'd have to be well over 40 to remember those days. In fact, Tulane last fired a shot at LSU in 1982 when an Orange Bowl season was spoiled for LSU by an upset loss to Tulane that season.

But for LSU and Tulane to be a rivalry, several things have to happen.

1) They have to play every year. That hasn't happened with any regularity in recent years.
2) Tulane would actually have to be competitive. That's not likely on Saturday.

If anything, this is more of a rivalry that was than the LSU-Ole Miss rivalry.

For whatever reason, LSU doesn't have a mutual rival. And maybe that's a good thing for the program and its fans.
