The last time Louisiana State University was crowned NCAA champions in college football, Les Miles hoisted the crystal Coaches’ Trophy after knocking off Jim Tressel’s Ohio State Buckeyes in the 2008 BCS National Championship Game. It was the program’s second title in five seasons, including Nick Saban’s 2004 Sugar Bowl triumph over Oklahoma.
Since then, LSU appeared in, but lost, the 2012 BCS Championship to Alabama and haven’t been back to college football’s mountaintop since. But high-level success, it seems, is on the horizon after last season’s 10-3 finish and Fiesta Bowl victory over UCF.
The LSU Tigers are a legitimate national title contender once again, and the 2019 college football season is going to prove just how far head coach Ed Orgeron’s program has come in his third full season. With massive games against the Texas Longhorns, Florida Gators, Auburn Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide and Texas A&M Aggies, as well as potential trap games versus the likes of Utah State and Mississippi State, it’s not an easy road for LSU football next season.
With that motto in mind, check out this awesome hype video created by YouTube user Chad Aucoin that’ll have Tiger fans ready to strap on a helmet and run out onto Tiger Stadium in Death Valley yourself.

To be honest, you can dub over any collegiate football team’s highlights with Avengers: Endgame quotes, and I’ll probably refer to them all as “the greatest hype video ever.” I don’t care. This one, and this one, and even this one, all give me chills.
College football Saturdays are coming. The SEC is up for grabs, and every team from Georgia to Ole Miss is bowl eligible once again. The stakes are as high as ever, but from day one of the preseason to the College Football Playoff selection show in December, Baton Rouge will be the place to be every Saturday night.
