Game Day is fast approaching, Tigers fans. LSU finalized its preparation for Western Kentucky on Wednesday. In the meantime, coach Les Miles made his weekly appearance on the SEC teleconference and his radio show. Miles discussed his punters, praised a backup tailback and lauded the Hilltoppers.
Here are 3 things to know:
- Western Kentucky (6-1) may not seem like a tough opponent. But LSU could be in a battle with the high-powered Hilltoppers if it isn’t careful.
- Miles said one of his tailbacks will play in the NFL someday. Spoiler alert: He wasn’t talking about Leonard Fournette.
- LSU’s secret weapon? Australian punters. Miles discussed how his Aussies have adjusted to American football.
