MOSCOW, ID – Major upsets in college football is one story line fans watch for every season.

Just this past weekend, Louisiana Monroe from the Sun Belt Conference took down the then eighth ranked team in the country, Arkansas of the SEC.

The Idaho Vandals are hoping they can be this week’s major upset when they face off against third ranked LSU on Saturday in Baton Rouge. Going into the game, Vandals head coach Robb Akey said his team has nothing to lose.

“If we don’t win the football game then we made everybody happy because that all told us that we couldn’t,” said Akey. “Should we play our tails off and make some things happened and get that opportunity then we could be the favorite football team in America with maybe the exception of the state of Louisiana.”

On the flipside, LSU has the possibility of playing for a Nation Championship to lose. Despite the face the Tigers are 42-point favorites and everybody and everything says they should have no trouble with this game, LSU head coach Les Miles said they are not taking this matchup lightly.

“This team comes in with at 0-2 record and not a name that just lights you up and we need to be ready to play,” said Miles. “We need to have the same intensity that we have we take the field every time in Tiger Stadium.”

One interesting note, LSU has won 19-straight games at home. The last time the Tigers lost at home was to Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators who snapped the Tiger’s then 19-straight home win streak.
