The atmosphere at Fair Grounds Field on Tuesday night was lacking compared to most years LSU and Centenary have met in Shreveport.

Part of that was due to the low-scoring nature of the game. There were no "L-S-U, L-S-U" chants that are as much a part of Tigers games as balls and strikes. It took venturing outside the press box to hear the first "Hot boudin, cold couscous" chant and that came in the fifth inning.

These clearly aren't your older brother's Tigers. If not for a Centenary error and Jared Mitchell's speed, the Tigers would be tied right now with a Gents team that isn't backing down.

Say this for Centenary, the Gents aren't acting like this is an LSU team that has slipped into mediocrity. As of now, the top of the sixth inning, the Gents are in perfect position to pick up their second straight win over LSU at Fair Grounds Field.
