Overall Record: 11-0 | SEC Record: 6-0Head Coach Paul DietzelThe legendary 1958 team compiled LSU's first perfect season since 1908 and became the first squad in school history to win the national title. Looking to build on a previous season record of 5-5, Coach Paul Dietzel's innovative three-platoon system - The White Team, the Go Team and the Chinese Bandits — revolutionized college football. The 1958 Tigers blew through SEC opponents, finishing the league slate with a perfect 6-0 record to win the SEC title. Among the wins was a Homecoming showdown against Florida in front of the first sellout crowd in Tiger Stadium history. LSU capped off the season with a Sugar Bowl win over Clemson, propelling the Tigers to a flawless 11-0 record.
