LSU football takes priority over everything on Saturdays. Those who live in Baton Rouge understand that better than most.

One of the local university grocery stores on campus made sure to be well-equipped for the Tigers’ home opener against Southern, turning its salad bar into a massive beer cooler. Just across the street from Tigers Stadium, the store tossed the salad to the side to make room for brews galore.

The Tigers are looking for better results in the second game of the Brian Kelly era. Last week, in its 24-23 loss to Florida State, LSU struggled to find any consistency on offense.

The Tigers are projected to start Jayden Daniels at quarterback once again following his performance against the Seminoles. Last week, the Arizona State transfer finished 26-of-35 passing for 206 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also led the Tigers on the ground with 114 rushing yards off 16 carries.

LSU had a chance to tie the game late in the 4th quarter thanks to a fumble recovery by defensive tackle Mekhi Wingo. Daniels led the Tigers 99 yards, connecting with wide receiver Jaray Jenkins for a 2-yard touchdown as time expired. The game was expected to head to overtime, but Damian Ramos’ PAT was blocked by FSU’s front 7.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
