It’s game week and that means for the 13th ranked LSU Tigers they are just five days away from opening the season in Houston against 14th ranked Wisconsin….
cut 30 (11) “…big up front”
That’s Coach Les Miles giving a scouting report on the Badgers. Miles once again made the statement that his two quarterbacks, Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris will play, but would not say who would start.

Louisiana Tech’s starting quarterback for the season opener against Oklahoma is still a mystery. The Bulldogs released a depth chart today that has Cody Sokul or Ryan Higgins as the starter against the Sooners.

Grambling State head Coach Broderick Fobbs is also staying mum on who his starting QB will be week one. The Tigers are at Lamar this Saturday.

The Saints returned to practice field this afternoon for the first time since beating the Colts on Saturday night. Quarterback Drew Brees performed well in that game, but he was not at practice today. Still waiting to hear something official from the Saints, but it could be that Brees is with his wife Brittany, who is expecting to give birth to their fourth child this week.

In college basketball…LSU’s Jordan Mikey and Jarrell Martin have both been named to the All-Sophyomore team for the 2014-15 season by Athlon Sports. Mikey averaged nearly 13 points and 8 rebounds a game last season, while Martin averaged 10 points and four and a half rebounds, after a slow start to the season.
