Best year ever

It's official. There's never been a better time to be a Tiger fan.

Coming five months after the LSU Tigers replaced the Florida Gators as the college football national champions, Tiger Stadium has toppled Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainsville as the country's toughest college football venue, according to EA Sports.

And a few weeks earlier, LSU finished in 8th place in the competition for the Director's Cup, which is presented each year to the college with the most successful overall athletic program. The placement was the highest ever for LSU, which had 13 teams earn top 20 end-of-season rankings.

Here's how the LSU squads fared:
#1 - Football
#1 - Women's Outdoor Track
#2 - Women's Indoor Track
#2 - Men's Outdoor Track
#4 - Women's Basketball
#4 - Men's Indoor Track
#5 - Gymnastics
#6 - Baseball
#15 - Softball
#17 - Men's Swimming and Diving
#18 - Women's Golf
#18 - Men's Tennis
#19 - Women's Swimming and Diving

Only 49 days to go until the Tigers take the field to defend the football championship.
