WHAT TO WATCH FOR: LSU has rebounded from unexpected midweek losses already this season, and it will have to do so again. The Tigers have lost three midweek games, most recently on Tuesday at Southern. When they lost their other two midweek games, they won the next weekend series. LSU enters Friday's game tied for first place in the SEC Western Division.
