Overall Record: 12-2 | SEC Record: 6-2
Head Coach Les Miles


Third-year coach Les Miles and the 2007 LSU Tigers looked to build on the momentum from the two previous seasons, each of which produced 11 wins. The Tigers posted a 6-2 SEC record, as three LSU players earned All-American honors. The Tigers defeated No. 15 Tennessee in the SEC Championship Game, setting up a showdown with No. 1 Ohio State in the BCS National Championship. In front of 75,000 plus fans in the New Orleans Superdome, the Buckeyes could not stop LSU's offense as the Tigers claimed the crystal ball, 38-24, making LSU the first team to win two BCS National Championships. Following the game Miles said, "LSU is a great place to get an education and a great place to win championships."
