Washington vs. LSU: "What They are Saying"

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

How do you prepare to face LSU as an underdog? You bring in a live Tiger to practice, of course! Will Chris Faulk's injury impact the LSU offense? Will LSU be ready for Washington's spread offense?  It's a showdown in Tiger Stadium and here's "What They are Saying":

From the Washington Post:

How to prepare a team that must walk past a real, live, albeit caged, tiger when it plays a road game in which it is not favored? Why, bring in a 300-pound tiger of your own, of course.

From the Mercury News:

This isn't only the Pac-12′s best chance to leave a positive impression, it's essentially the last chance.

From Yahoo! Sports:

"It wasn't our best performance," Mingo said. "We were a little jittery and we missed some tackles; something that we are not accustomed to doing."

From WAFB Sports:

LSU starting junior left tackle Chris Faulk was injured in practice Wednesday and will miss Saturday's game versus the Washington Huskies.

From NOLA.com:

A crash course in defending the spread against West Virginia last season has the Tigers feeling confident in their ability to ground the Huskies aerial attack.

From Fox News:

The Washington Huskies head to SEC country for the first time in nearly three decades, as they invade Baton Rouge this weekend for a showdown with the third-ranked LSU Tigers.

From CBS Sports:

The Huskies have a strong offense, but that probably won't mean all that much on Saturday night in Baton Rouge. Plenty of strong offenses have taken on LSU before only to fail miserably. All the Huskies have to do is ask Pac-12 North foe Oregon about that.

From WAFB Sports:

The Tigers committed ten penalties and one turnover in the Red Zone. This week Les Miles wants the team to focus on improving in all phases.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
