BATON ROUGE, LA (lsusports.net) -- The Golden Band from Tigerland added the rap hit "All I Do Is Win" to its Tiger Stadium repertoire on Saturday night, which was fitting for the still-undefeated and ninth-ranked LSU football team.
Though not an instant classic, the Tigers improved to 7-0 for the first time since 1973 with a 32-10 victory over McNeese State. As a result, LSU setup a Top-10 matchup with the now No. 7-ranked Auburn Tigers next weekend on The Plains (2:30 p.m. CT, CBS).
On a day when No. 1 Ohio State, No. 5 Nebraska and No. 10 South Carolina each lost, all the homestanding Tigers did was win -- again. Auburn did too, to the tune of 65-43 at home over Arkansas.
Head coach Les Miles improved to 26-1 in non-conference games at LSU and 42-4 at night -- though this night was a bit longer than Miles hoped.
LSU (7-0, 4-0 SEC) overcame two first-half turnovers that led the all of the Cowboys' points, while using a conservative offensive attack to grind out a victory over the Football Championship Subdivision school. McNeese State fell to 2-4.
