LOOK: Citrus Bowl patch is a sweet addition to LSU’s white uniform

It looks like the LSU uniforms are getting ready to go for the Citrus Bowl.

The Tigers are set for a New Year’s Day bowl game matchup with Notre Dame. It should be a great game to cap off an impressive 9-3 season under head coach Ed Orgeron.

An early loss to Troy this season put LSU in a dangerous spot, but the Tigers responded. They finished the year on a 6-1 run with the lone loss coming to Alabama. It is a strong finish for the Tigers and something they look to build off of for the future.

LSU Football Equip shared a sneak peek at the patch for the Citrus Bowl, and it sure does look fantastic on the white uniform of the Tigers:

Kickoff for the Citrus Bowl is set for New Year’s Day at 1 pm EST on ABC.

Paul Finebaum: Jim Harbaugh ‘poached’ Shea Patterson

Shea Patterson’s arrival in Ann Arbor could mean big things for Michigan if he is able to play right away.

Patterson announced his decision to transfer to Michigan from Ole Miss on Monday. He is a former five-star QB and highly touted recruit from the class of 2016 who has already thrown for 3,000 yards in his college career.

Patterson will have to wait and see if the NCAA will grant him immediate eligibility after a number of sanctions were handed down to Ole Miss, and Paul Finebaum believes the ability to play Patterson in 2018 would make Michigan title contenders. He also commented that Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh ‘poached’ Patterson.

Here is a look at his full tweet:

Ole Miss is dealing with a number of transfers following NCAA sanctions, but it certainly didn’t take long for Harbaugh and the Wolverines to swoop in on Patterson.

While the emergence of Jordan Ta’amu this season leaves the Rebels well prepared for 2018, Patterson’s departure is still a tough one for fans. Watching Patterson lead the Wolverines to a big year would be a tough pill to swallow.

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit weighs in on Shea Patterson’s transfer to Michigan

Shea Patterson announced Monday that he is leaving Oxford and is headed to Michigan.

Patterson, a former five-star QB from the class of 2016, had a strong year for the Rebels before suffering a season-ending knee injury against LSU. The following emergence of QB Jordan Ta’amu with the offense and sanctions handed down from the NCAA led to Patterson’s transfer.

He heads to a Michigan program that has received a lot of hype with Jim Harbaugh at the helm but has yet to win a Big 10 Championship during his time there. Adding a talented QB like Patterson could change that. Patterson has thrown for 3,139 yards and 23 TDs in 10 career games with the Rebels.

Kirk Herbstreit weighed in on Patterson’s decision and called it a “big time pickup” for Michigan:

It should be noted that Patterson did play as a freshman, but he only appeared in three games following an injury to Chad Kelly. It is also unclear if he will be eligible to play immediately in 2018, though Patterson will likely petition the NCAA in order to be declared eligible.

Still, there is no denying that Patterson is a talented signal caller and could have a major impact with the Wolverines.
