LSU-Troy football game preview
The Tigers are coming off an uneven win over Syracuse, one in which the defense held the Orange to 3 points in the first half but allowed 23 in the second and where the rushing offense went from posting 46 yards in the first half to 105 in the second half.
Offensively, the story to watch will, as always, be the quarterbacks. Etling will start, but Brennan will play to earn snaps before he’s expected to start next season. The only question for Saturday is when Brennan will come in and for how long.
On defense, injuries are a big question mark. Defensive end Rashard Lawrence, safety John Battle and defensive tackle Ed Alexander are listed as questionable, and free safety Ed Paris is out for the season. Without those four regular contributors, depth will be a concern against a Troy team that averages 72.5 offensive snaps per game.
In addition to those three defenders, running back Derrius Guice and right tackle Toby Weathersby are also questionable for Saturday. Neither Guice nor Weathersby participated in a full-contact practice this week.
