LSU canceled practice Wednesday because of Hurricane Isaac and will adapt its plans for the rest of the week based on developments with the storm, coach Les Miles said.
Miles, speaking from his office in the LSU football operations building on the Southeasten Conference coaches weekly teleconference, said players had the options of staying in the dorm rooms inside Tiger Stadium, in the indoor practice facility, or their regular housing.
“The stadium would be the safest,” Miles said. “We’re in the facility, hunkered down, letting this thing blow. ”
The university announced that classes had been canceled for Thursday. The Tigers season opener against North Texas is still scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday in Tiger Stadium.
The university issued a statement saying it will re-evaluate the situation after Isaac has passed through Baton Rouge.
Two other LSU athletic events have been changed. The soccer match against Stephen F. Austin has been postponed from Friday until Tuesday, though the soccer match against Houston is still scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday.
The Tiger Classic Volleyball Tournament, which was scheduled for the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Friday and Saturday, was moved to Houston because of travel complications involving opponents.
LSU will provide information of any changes concerning athletics events through its website – LSUsports.net
