LSU Vs. West Virginia: Game Time And College Gameday Information

The Mountaineers will have to figure out a way to topple an ultra-tough LSU defense.

The upheaval in the Big East has many West Virginia Mountaineers fans distracted, but there's a huge game coming up in Morgantown on Saturday, as No. 2 LSU comes to town to face the No. 16-ranked Mountaineers at 8:00 PM on ABC. ESPN College GameDay will be in town as well, broadcasting from the Mountainlair Plaza off North High Street.

LSU will be the highest-ranked team to come to Morgantown since Miami in 2002. West Virginia will be the third ranked team the Tigers will have faced this year - they've already beaten Oregon and Mississippi State. Their ultra-stingy defense held Mississippi State to six points, and the Tigers aren't afraid to engage in low-scoring games, knowing they can win them most of the time.

Mississippi State certainly struggled to score against LSU in the first two quarters. After the Bulldogs managed only a 26-yard field goal in the first half, Brockers pulled LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee aside before the second half.

"I told him just run the clock out and hold the ball," [tackle Michael] Brockers said. "I told him we'd win by a 9-6 score. It's like that every game. If our offense can score three points, we'll win by a 3-0 score. We'll take it."

Expect an extremely tough challenge for Geno Smith and the WVU offense. The Mountaineers may have a chance if they can get Lee to throw some interceptions, but he has done a nice job avoiding them this year.
