WHAT TO WATCH FOR: LSU has not determined a starter for Saturday's game, so keep an eye on who pitches out of the bullpen Thursday. The Tigers are going to make a decision based on who's available and how the other games went. Todd Peterson is a candidate to start Saturday, but will LSU use him to win one of the first two games?
