Miles, Tigers hanging onto slim SEC hopes

BATON ROUGE - Les Miles says LSU is embracing the notion that it still has a chance, albeit an outside chance, to win the Southeastern Conference.

Alabama could have locked up the SEC West's title game by beating Texas A&M last Saturday, but the Crimson Tide was upset by Johnny Manziel and the Aggies in Tuscaloosa.

As a result, the eighth-ranked Tigers can remain in the running to reach the SEC championship game by knocking off its next two opponents: Ole Miss on Saturday and Arkansas on the day after Thanksgiving. Of course, LSU's chances are slim because fourth-ranked Alabama would have to lose to Auburn, which is winless in the SEC.

Still, Miles says the Tigers must finish strong and maintain goals in line with the best possible outcome.
