With the start of the 2019 college football season just weeks away, the first hype video of the year has been released by the LSU Athletic Department, one that's certain to fire up the Tiger faithful for the coming season!

A preview of the Tigers' season from athlonsports.com:

"The LSU Tigers return seven starters on offense, eight on defense and landed a top-five recruiting class. But it may be the new $400,000-per-year assistant who makes the biggest impact.

Coach Ed Orgeron hired Joe Brady away from the New Orleans Saints to serve as LSU’s passing game coordinator. Brady's tasks: integrate elements of the Saints' potent passing game into LSU's playbook while also incorporating the run-pass option principles he learned as a graduate assistant under then-Penn State offensive coordinator and current Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead. 

LSU looks to parlay its first New Year’s Six bowl into being a true contender for the College Football Playoff. The road schedule is daunting, with a September trip to Texas and a November showdown at Alabama. But if LSU can manage to drop just one of those and hold serve on its remaining schedule, the Tigers can be in the mix for the CFP provided the new RPO attack is as productive as hoped."
