Here are some quick links, news and updates from LSU country. From lsufootball.net, here is a quick synopsis of the matchup:
|Cowboys Classic: LSU vs. Oregon|
Tiger quarter Jordan Jefferson is scheduled to go through the ESPN “Carwash” tomorrow (like Darron Thomas and Matt Barkley on Tuesday). He’ll be interviewed on “First Take,” appear on ESPN radio on the Scott Van Pelt show, and be interviewed by Erin Andrews on College Football Live.
In a video interview with the Shreveport Times, Les Miles praises Jefferson’s improvement and says he expects “his best year.”
In an average of 16 polls, the Tigers are picked third in the country, one spot ahead of Oregon.
Although the Sporting News picked the Bayou Bengals as their preseason number one, columnist Matt Hayes says they have the toughest non-conference schedule in the country, with the neutral site game with the Ducks, Northwestern State, at West Virginia, Western Kentucky. Three PAC-10 schools make the top ten.
At five p.m., the kickoff countdown is inside 80 days.
