RiceEdit

The Tigers traveled to Houston to face Rice. LSU picked up their third consecutive shutout of the season in a 13–0 victory. It also marked the longest fumble recovery returned for a touchdown in LSU history when Ken Kavanaugh scooped up a Rice fumble and returned it 100 yards for the score.
