NO. 20 WASHINGTON AT LSU
When: Sept. 8
Where: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, La.
Why it's No. 20: Interesting matchup between traditional powers in the Pac-12 and the SEC. In its early 2012 Top 25, ESPN ranks LSU at No. 1 and Washington at No. 21. So barring any early upsets, this should be a matchup of Top 25 teams.
Series history: LSU leads the series 2-0.
Rivalry on a scale of 1-100: 10. Hard to find any animosity between a school in the Pacific Northwest and one in the Deep South. As long as Washington keeps its husky away from Mike VI's cage, I wouldn't expect any bad blood on or off the field.
