Getting to know LSU

LSU faces a rebuilding year after losing talent across the board. Many of the Tigers' key players have departed, as the Bayou Bengals saw nine of their own drafted in 2014. Luckily, the Tigers will be bringing in the No. 2 recruiting class in the country, according to Rivals.com. Many of these talented recruits will be asked to step in and contribute immediately.

What's really at stake

Now the stakes are high. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal have decided to wager on the outcome of tonight's game between the Badgers and the LSU Tigers. The good news: beer will change hands either way. If Wisconsin wins, it gets some from Abita, a prized Southern brewery. It'll also get some jambalaya. Should LSU win, Walker will send over cheese, beer and brats. No details on the brands yet, so here's hoping he just sends over a ton of High Life Light.
