 The 2016 LSU Tigers opened up their Fall Camp yesterday; with head coach Les Miles entering his 12th year at the helm of one of the nation’s truly elite football programs of the last decade.

As such, expectations in Baton Rouge are very high — as most observers have the Tigers ranked as a Pre-Season Top 5 team.

The team returns 18 of 22 starters on offense and defense; and boasts the 3rd-ranked signing class of 2016.

Leonard Fournette is a prime candidate for the Heisman Trophy and the defense has a wealth of talent.

Talent aside, the team will go as far as Brandon Harris takes them. He is the key cog in the Tiger machine. Harris needs to have a breakout season in order to get LSU to the SEC championship and beyond that, the playoffs.

With that being said, it’s time to predict the outcome (a “W” or an “L”)  for every single game of the upcoming season, and see if LSU can “get over the hump” in 2016.
