LSU taking Louisiana Monroe seriously
BATON ROUGE - LSU has been in these types of games before and they've lost these types of games before, which is why when Louisiana Monroe comes to Death Valley on Saturday, they will have the Tigers full attention.
While some fans might bemoan a second-straight non power 5 conference opponent for the Tigers, head coach Les Miles reminded the media on Monday that the Warhawks have won games against Arkansas (2012) and Alabama (2007).
The Tigers themselves also escaped a game against Troy in 2008, a 40-31 come-from-behind win that still resonates with Miles.
"I tell you, Troy came into our stadium as you remember not too long ago, and we had to come roaring from behind to get victory," Miles said on Monday.
This year, the Warhawks are 2-0 with wins over Wake Forest and Idaho.
