Brian Kelly is bringing out all the stops in practice to get his team ready to take on Mississippi State this weekend.

LSU’s head coach brought out cowbells during practice this week to prepare for the road test against the Bulldogs. Mississippi State is known for having the constant ringing of cowbells during home games.

Kelly is hoping that if his players get used to hearing cowbells all week, then the noise won’t be a factor on Saturday.

“We had them out at practice yesterday and they create a different environment, that is certain,” Kelly said during the SEC coaches teleconference Wednesday. “But I guess it’s like anything else. If you get used to it during the week of practice, it then becomes your job to make sure they’re not as active in the game by playing well. So certainly early in the game we expect a really enthusiastic crowd, and it’ll be up to our play to manage that. But again, I think you have to prepare for the eventuality of silent count and things of that nature. But no, it’s the first time that I’ve gone into an environment with a cowbell.”

LSU is looking for an early SEC win over Mississippi State, which is coming off an overtime win against Arizona last week. The matchup between the Tigers and the Bulldogs kicks off at noon ET on Saturday.
