Scouting report

The Bearkats have made three straight trips to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs, but that streak is in jeopardy this season. Coach Willie Fritz left for Georgia Southern, and new coach K.C. Keeler returned only seven starters, led by All-Southland Conference safety Michael Wade (105 tackles). New QB Jared Johnson threw for 317 yards in the opener against Eastern Washington, while Keshawn Hill rushed for 133 yards. This game, the first between LSU and Sam Houston in football, will mark the Tigers’ debut on the SEC Network.
