So far in 2012 the defending SEC Champions have made very easy work of non-conference opponents, and Idaho doesn't look to fare any better against a LSU team that's already outscored the opposition 82-17.

LSU has averaged a healthy 279 yards a game, while the Vandals couldn't muster a single yard per carry in a 21-13 loss to Bowling Green. The Vandals will try and pass the ball against LSU - quarterback Dominique Blackmon threw for 357 yards in the loss to the Falcons. But with such a one-dimensional offense and a problem giving up sacks, expect the Tiger defense to have a huge day.

That's not to say LSU won't be sleeping. The Tigers have a 39-game non-conference winning streak for a reason, and as NOLA.com points out, they're aware of what happened in Little Rock last weekend.
