Both Washington and LSU won their openers, but the Huskies will face a significantly tougher test as they head south to face the third-ranked Tigers. LSU is coming off the back of a 41-14 rout of North Texas, while Washington beat San Diego State 21-12.
LSU pounded it away on the ground last week, with Kenny Hilliard rushing for 141 yards and Alfred Blue chipping in with 123. Washington did most of their damage through the air, with Keith Price throwing for 222 yard on the day while completing 25 of 35. His favorite target was Austin Seferian Jenkins, who he connected with 9 times for 82 yards.
LSU is forced to adjust to the loss of starting offensive lineman Chris Faulk. Washington, on the other hand, will be without Hau'oli Jamora, James Johnson, Cooper Pelluer, Deontae Cooper, Nate Feliner, and Jamaal Kearse.
Game time, TV channel: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN
