No. 17 LSU looks to rebound vs. New Mexico State
BATON ROUGE - Even as LSU has tumbled in the rankings from No. 8 to No. 17 following its first loss this season, fullback Connor Neighbors wouldn't dream of treating last weekend's setback as an irreparable blow.
Neighbors says LSU has to learn from its mistakes and adds that "losing to Mississippi State may have been the best thing to happen" to the Tigers, who still have most of the season left to bounce back.
Indeed, anything can - and does - happen in college football. And that's also why a six-touchdown underdog like New Mexico State (2-2) dreams of a landmark victory in Tiger Stadium on Saturday night, even though Aggies coach Doug Martin says his team will have to overcome deficits in talent, size and speed to do it.
