Two more tests

It's a two-game season for the LSU Tigers football team.

They need a win on Friday against Arkansas and another in the SEC title game. Do that, and LSU is in the national championship game.

Here's the twist, Les Miles hasn't been able to pull off this daily double since coming to LSU in 2005.

He got the win over Arkansas in 2005, but then came a loss in the SEC Championshp Game to Georgia.

Last year, he got the win over Arkansas, but there was no SEC Championship Game.

The next game is always the most important one. On paper, LSU ought to be able to score some points. The challenge will be slowing down Darren McFadden and the Arkansas offense.

The LSU defense hasn't been nearly the force it was early in the season. Injuries have a lot to do with that. Still, LSU is going to need a better performance than the one it had last week at Ole Miss on defense.
