WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Sophomore Hal Hughes took advantage of a start last weekend, and he has started at third base each of LSU's last three games. With Hughes playing well, coach Paul Mainieri has moved senior Chris Reid to first base. (Reid started most of the season at third.) The new-look infield has worked well for LSU.
