This is the game you've heard about. The worst rushing defense in FBS against the best running back in the nation. The Eastern Michigan Eagles (1-3) have lost their third home game of the year and will play at ninth-ranked LSU Tigers (3-0).
Last week, Army ran 71 run plays for 556 yards for EMU's defense to now allow 373.3 yards per game. But the Eagles at least have an offense that's averaging 33.8 points per game, so it's worth seeing how they'll play and adjust on offense throughout.
Location: Tiger Stadium, home of the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Game time: Kickoff is set to start at 7 p.m. EST (6 p.m. CT).
TV: ESPNU with Allen Bestwick doing the play-by-play and Dan Hawkins doing the analysis.
Radio: 89.1 WEMU with Matt Shepard doing play-by-play, and Rob Rubick as the analyst. LSU Sports Radio Network, 98.1 FM in Baton Rouge. Sirius Satellite Raddio stations 134 and 201 (XM).
Odds: LSU (+45)
Players to watch
Darius Jackson (RB, EMU)- There's an argument to be made about him being the best running back in the MAC this season. He's averaging over 100 yards per game and has seven touchdowns too.
Brogan Roback (QB, EMU)- Roback is playing pretty well, but one could assume he'll be limited to a lot of quick, short passes. Good time to see if he can effectively improvise to make a few plays.
Great Ibe (LB, EMU)- Still the best player on this defense, Ibe has to step up big against the Tigers offense.
Leonarde Fournette (RB, LSU)- The only reason most people will stop by to watch this game is because of him. The sophomore averages 210 yards per game through three games. Should be a Heisman frontrunner right now.
Brandon Harris (QB, LSU)- He's thrown 47 passes so far and hasn't turned the ball over. Should be a good test for the Eagles secondary.
