LSU Sports Services
LSU opens its fifth season under Les Miles on Sept. 5 in Seattle against the Huskies. Kickoff between the Tigers and the Huskies is set for 9:36 p.m. CT and the game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
"Thursday and Friday were devoted primarily to Washington and our game plans are under way," Miles said. "There's much more attention to detail and a little bit more speed in practice today. As long as camp gets, I think everybody is ready to play someone with a different color jersey on."
Miles complimented the progress that freshman safety Craig Loston has made since joining the team on Monday. Loston, who was the top-rated prep safety last year at Eisenhower High School in Aldine, Texas, missed all of fall camp and wasn't able to join the Tigers until the first day of school.
"Craig Loston is a very good player with a very good football IQ," Miles said. "He understands concepts well and I expect he might play some at Washington. He will be a very competent safety, but we'll predominately use him on special teams."
Against Washington, the Tigers will face a Husky squad with a new coach in Steve Sarkisian, who spent the past four seasons coaching the quarterbacks and serving as the offensive coordinator at Southern Cal. "I can tell you that Washington has talent," Miles said.
"If you look at last year's film you can see that they have ability and it's just a matter of putting it together. (Quarterback Jake) Locker is healthy and he played in only four games a year ago and certainly that's a key to a season for them.
"I think they have a very good defense and a good scheme and I think the same is true about their offense. They also have good kickers, a good punter and good return men. That team will have athletes like ours and they will come to play."
LSU will practice again on Saturday before taking Sunday off. LSU will return to its normal game-week practice routine on Monday afternoon.
