Two teams with a lot to prove in opening game

Boy, talk about two teams with something to prove.

For LSU, three years removed from winning a national championship, a prime-time showcase against North Carolina provides a chance to start reclaiming its status as a big hitter in a college football world now dominated by two of its chief rivals.

That's nothing compared to what's on the line for the Tar Heels, who have been rocked by a series of embarrassing revelations and may have trouble just fielding a complete team for Saturday night's opener at the Georgia Dome.

"All the kids who are in this program came here because they wanted to play in big games," North Carolina coach Butch Davis said.

"They're certainly going to get their opportunity."

Just not the ones the No. 18 Tar Heels were counting on against No. 21 LSU.
