LSU-Troy: Pregame observations from Tiger Stadium

lsu-lsu football-derrius guice

BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU faces a non-conference opponent for the final time this season when it hosts Troy for homecoming. The game kicks off at 6 p.m. from Tiger Stadium.

The Tigers are looking to win their 50th consecutive non-conference home game, which would put LSU five shy of tying the record established by Harvard from 1890-95. However, of far more importance to the Tigers is the need to iron out erratic elements of their game before diving deep into conference play. LSU has looked especially vulnerable on the offensive line against Mississippi State and Syracuse.

To prepare you for kickoff, SEC Country is providing observations from Tiger Stadium from now until kickoff. Click here to see SEC Country’s score predictions, and here to find information on where to watch the game on TV and online.

Derrius Guice is warming up

After playing ineffectively against Syracuse and not practicing this week, the conventional wisdom was that Derrius Guice would probably miss this week’s game so he could return to face Florida at full strength.

The conventional wisdom appears to be wrong. Guice is in full pads warming up.

Guice even found time to poke fun at the speculation that has swirled over his injury status on social media.

Guice twisted his knee on a tackle against Mississippi State.

Other observations from Tiger Stadium:

  • Ed Orgeron is giving the full sales pitch to Destrehan running back John Emery Jr., the top-rated Louisiana running back in the Class of 2019.

  • Safety John Battle is dressed out. Battle left the Syracuse game with an injury and was listed as questionable by Orgeron earlier this week.
  • LSU’s purple uniforms and white helmets look nice. See?
