WHAT TO WATCH FOR: LSU will experiment with its lineup throughout the weekend as it looks for the best combination of players. At some point on Saturday, the Tigers will start sophomore center fielder Giovanni DiGiacomo, freshman Wes Toups and freshman catcher Alex Milazzo. No one competing for playing time will secure his spot for the rest of the season on opening weekend, but LSU needs some of its young players to emerge as reliable starters. Will someone step up on Saturday?
