LSU has not played inside the Longhorns' stadium since 1954, and there has been a copious amount of trash talk between the opponents this week.It is a difficult game to predict against the spread since both teams faced an overmatched opponent in blowout wins during Week.LSU romped Georgia Southern, while the Longhorns won easily against Louisiana Tech.It will be surprising if LSU and Texas are involved in another blowout on Saturday night.
