Bayou Guy Can Handle BYU
LSU plays Brigham Young tonight in New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The contest, which was relocated from Houston due to Hurricane Harvey, will be the season opener for the Tigers. Coach Ed Orgeron, who was selected the permanent new LSU coach after replacing Les Miles on an interim basis after four games last year, will depend on the defensive schemes of holdover coach Dave Aranda and the innovative up-tempo offensive calls of new coach Matt Canada. Running back Derrius Guice is on many pre-season All American teams after replacing former Tigers back Leonard Fournette late last year. Quarterback Danny Etling will have to provide steady leadership and production if the Tigers are going to make a run for the SEC West title.
