After a year with coach John P. Gregg, the Tigers rehired Edmond A. Chavanne for coaching position at LSU football for the 1900 season, which featured two games against Millsaps, one at Tulane, and one against Louisiana State University alumni.
Edmond A. Chavanne left the Tigers following the 1900 season and was replaced by W.S. Boreland as head coach in 1901, leading the team to a successful 5–1 season. Tulane forfeited the game on November 16.
W.S. Boreland returns in 1902 for his second season as LSU head coach. The seven-game 1902 season was the longest for the Tigers since their first game in 1893 and also featured the most amount of games on the road; five games played away and only two in Baton Rouge.
1903 was W.S. Boreland's third and final season as LSU head coach as he finished 4–5 for the season (15–7 in all three years as head coach). The 1903 season broke the previous season's record for most games played (seven) with nine games. The Tigers played four home games; three in Baton Rouge and one in New Orleans, but were on the road the rest of the season. For the 1903 season, point values were different from those used in contemporary games. In 1903 a touchdown was worth five points, a field goal was worth five points and an conversion (PAT) was worth one point.
The 1907 season was the first year under Coach Edgar Wingard. It was also the first year at LSU for star player, Doc Fenton. Fenton, who was from Scranton, PA, had been heavily recruited by Wingard to play at LSU. The Tigers opened the season in grand fashion, at State Field, by beating Louisiana Tech 28-0. A highlight of that game was a 90-yard touchdown run by Doc Fenton. This spectacular win was followed by losses on the road at Texas and Texas A&M. After these losses, LSU went on to win 4 straight games, including its first ever victory over Arkansas. That 4 game winning streak was broken by a loss to Alabama. In the contest against Alabama, LSU led for most of the game because of two safeties. Alabama scored late in the game from an 85-yard punt return to win the game 6-4. LSU's next game resulted in a win over Baylor. Their last game of the season was in an appearance at the Bacardi Bowl. This was LSU's first bowl game, and the first time any U.S. football team played in a foreign country. This game, played in Cuba against the University of Havanna resulted in a 56-0 victory for LSU.
