Louisiana Tech

The Tigers opened the season in grand fashion, at State Field, by beating Louisiana Tech 28–0. A highlight of that game was a 90-yard touchdown run by Doc Fenton. It was Louisiana Tech's only loss on the season.

Texas and Texas A&M

This win was followed by losses on the road at Texas and Texas A&M. After these losses, LSU went on to win 4 straight games.


The Tigers romped over Howard 57–0.


The 17–12 win over Arkansas was the school's first over the school.


That 4 game winning streak was broken by a loss to Alabama. In the contest against Alabama, LSU led for most of the game because of two safeties. Alabama scored late in the game from an 85-yard punt return to win the game 6–4.


LSU's next game resulted in a win over Baylor.

Bacardi Bowl

Their last game of the season was in an appearance at the Bacardi Bowl. This was LSU's first bowl game, and the first time any U.S. football team played in a foreign country.

This game, played in Cuba against the University of Havana resulted in a 56–0 victory for LSU.
