LSU was picked to finish second in the SEC West by reporters at the conference's media days, and the Tigers, which went 10-3 in 2018 with a Fiesta Bowl victory, had three players named to the All-SEC preseason first team: All-American safety Grant Delpit, center Lloyd Cushenberry and defensive end Rashard Lawrence.
LSU also announced that there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at noon July 24 to open its newly renovated Football Operations and Performance Nutrition Center.
The nearly $23 million renovation project includes the addition of nearly 25,000 square feet, with a new training room, offices, locker room, players lounge and cafeteria.
