WHAT TO WATCH FOR: After a six hour, 43-minute loss to Mississippi State, LSU has to wake up to play an elimination game. The Tigers left the stadium exhausted on Thursday morning. They had a few hours of sleep before they got ready for Auburn. LSU needs Marceaux at his best to advance in the tournament and boost its chances of hosting an NCAA regional.
