Last night’s first round of the NFL Draft saw three LSU Tigers go in the first round. LSU Quarterback and Heisman winner Jayden Daniels was selected with the second overall pick to the Washington Commanders and he says that he’s all in on bringing back a winning culture to the Commanders.

Cut 13 (11) “… some fun.”

LSU Wide receiver Malik Nabers didn’t have to wait long after Daniels to hear his name called. The New York Giants selected Nabers with the 6th overall pick and LSU wide receiver Brian Thomas Junior was also selected in the first round of the draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 23rd overall pick.

The Saints had only one pick in the first round last night and selected Oregon State Offensive Tackle Taliese Fuaga (Tall-ee-s-a Foo-ah-gah). The Saints needed an offensive tackle heading into the first round and selected Fuaga with the hopes that he can develop into a starter for this upcoming season. Fuaga did not give up a sack while playing at Oregon State.

LSU baseball will try to keep its momentum going this weekend when the Tigers take on Auburn in the Box. LSU took two out of three on the road at Missouri last weekend and LSU Head Coach Jay Johnson hopes that his team can do the same, if not better, against Auburn this weekend.

Cut 19 (07) “… this place.”

The first pitch of tonight’s game is scheduled for 6:30 pm

The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs are in second place in Conference USA as they head into their matchup against the Sam Houston State Bearkats. Louisiana Tech is 8 and 3 in conference play this season while Sam Houston State is only 7 and 8. UL-Lafayette will host Southern Miss this weekend. The Ragin Cajuns are 2 and 8 over the last ten games against Southern Miss, but they hope to turn the tide after going 15 and 3 in Sun Belt play so far this season. And ULM is also in action against Old Dominion this weekend. The Warhawks are 6 and 12 in Sun Belt play and the Monarchs recently dropped out of the top 25.
