LSU Tigers vs. UAB Blazers—7 p.m. ET, ESPNU
The LSU Tigers will try to clean up mistakes in their home opener against UAB Saturday evening.
A fumble near the Tigers' own goal line, a kickoff return for a touchdown and a drive-continuing roughing the passer committed against TCU nearly cost the Tigers in their 37-27 win in the season opener. Les Miles said Tuesday that the team made an effort to correct such blunders, according to the Associated Press (via Yahoo! Sports).
Besides minimizing gaffes, the Tigers must take UAB seriously tonight, as the Blazers sport an athletic wide receiver in Jamarcus Nelson who led the nation in all-purpose yards with 367 after the first week of action.
The Tigers' secondary will have to game-plan specifically for Nelson and quarterback Austin Brown, who threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-31 loss to Troy last week. Keep an eye on the Tigers' strategy defending these talented offensive weapons.
As for any lingering questions for the Tigers, the biggest has to be whether or not Jeremy Hill will play on Saturday. Find out with me here as I break down all the action live from Tiger Stadium.
