Apparently, the LSU Tigers aren’t the only people wearing purple and gold who are concerned about improving following a sluggish opener.
The same is true for the Washington Huskies following their less-than-stellar 21-12 victory over San Diego State.
Here’s a link to the Seattle Times web page dedicated to the Washington Huskies, including game coverage and second-day stuff as well.
The victory was apparently costly for Washington. Huskies starting tailback Jesse Callier suffered what was described in the Times as a potentially serious knee injury early in the game. Also right tackle Ben Riva left the game in the first half with a broken forearm. Without them, the Huskies rushed 31 times for just 106 yards and Washington scored just two offensive touchdowns.
And though it has nothing to do with the LSU-Washington game, read why San Diego State coach Rocky Long decided not to kick at all in Saturday’s contest.

Remember, LSU has pushed back its weekly news conference with coach Les Miles to Tuesday because of the Labor Day holiday. Same with player access, so no interviews on Monday. Still, expect full coverage of the Tigers here at www.theadvocate.com and in The Advocate.
