LSU's football program has played two "rivalry" games in back-to-back weeks. The Tigers won both games in dominant fashion, beating Ole Miss and Arkansas, respectively.

The Ole Miss-LSU and the Arkansas-LSU games both give out trophies to the winner.

LSU's players didn't seem to care about either trophy, though.

It's understandable, really. LSU has several "rivalry" games and it's tough to keep track of what's supposed to be important and what's not. LSU second-year quarterback Joe Burrow summed it up best: “I don’t know who LSU’s rival is. We have so many (rivalry) trophies and every time I come here you say it’s a rivalry game," he said on Monday.

Burrow was asked earlier this year to compare the Alabama-LSU rivalry to the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry. He said it was hard to compare the two and to ask him "in two years when I look back and reflect on it.”

However, it seems like he's already answered it with that comment above.

Ohio State's players most definitely know who their rival is.
