WATCH: LSU-Miami players get in pre-game altercation
Judging by the pregame “festivities,” the LSU-Miami game is going to be a good one.
The Tigers and Hurricanes already had a national spotlight all to themselves for the Sunday night ABC game set to kick at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT and now get the added attention that comes after a pre-game scuffle. The game, set in Arlington, pits the No. 8 Hurricanes against the No. 25 Tigers.

LSU is a slight underdog to Miami, as the Tigers are a two and a half point underdog in this one.
Just had a little pregame dust up between @CanesFootball & @LSUfootball to get the juices flowing. It’s going to be lit in here about an hour from now!#SECvsACC
