It’s been an intriguing decade for LSU football.

Since 2014, three new head coaches have overseen the school, two quarterbacks have won the Heisman, and LSU has had to adapt to changes in the sport, just like every other program.

But it’s hard to grumble. There have been dips, but Tiger supporters are generally pleased with this era of LSU football. Today, we’ll look at LSU’s ten most dominant performances over the last ten years.

When compiling this list, I considered the opponent’s strength as well as a few sophisticated statistics. This is more than just LSU’s top ten blowouts. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Mississippi State – 2023

This game served as a kickstarter for Jayden Daniels’ Heisman campaign in 2023.

It also just happens to be LSU’s best success rate differential against a Power Five team in the last 10 years. LSU’s offense posted a success rate of 57% while the defense held Mississippi State to 26%, giving LSU an advantage of +31%. That’s pure dominance.

It doesn’t stop there. LSU outgained Mississippi State by 329 yards with the Bulldogs averaging just 3.7 yards per pass.

There was never really a point where Mississippi State had a chance to make this close. LSU took a 24-7 lead into halftime and didn’t stop there, winning 41-14.

Mississippi State wasn’t good, but the level of dominance LSU displayed here was impressive.
