WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Costello last pitched two weeks ago against Florida. The freshman gave up six hits and four runs over two innings. LSU used most of its bullpen against Ole Miss, and it plays Arkansas on a short week. The Tigers need Costello to give them a good start as they try to get back on track before the pivotal Southeastern Conference series.
