BATON ROUGE - The sight of UAB taking the field in Death Valley will bring back some bad memories for LSU fans.

This time, though, the ninth-ranked Tigers should be able to eliminate fears of history repeating itself.

According to odds makers, LSU (1-0) is supposed to open its home slate on Saturday night with a nearly five-touchdown margin of victory over the Blazers (0-1).

UAB, by contrast, aims to make its second trip to Tiger Stadium much like the first - a 13-10 upset in 2000.

LSU coach Les Miles says he expects UAB coach Garrick McGee, a former Arkansas offensive coordinator, to test the Tigers with an attack that scored 31 points at Troy last week.

The Tigers are coming off a 37-27 win over TCU.
