Weekend preview

Call this Warmup Weekend -- the last weekend before conference play

And LSU isn't backing down from a challenge. The Tigers, who won a terse 2-1 game against Centenary on Tuesday night, host a dangerous Southern Miss team. If the Tigers aren't careful, they could be 9-9 entering conference play next weekend.

Louisiana Tech and Northwestern State will test themselves in road series. Tech heads to Sam Houston State while NSU travels to Jacksonville State.

Tech probably needs a series win more than the Demons, who have seen their junior college transfer-laden lineup turn it on. It's possible no one in the state has been more consistently impressive than NSU's Brandon Richey, who has sparked NSU's surge from the top of the lineup.

The Bulldogs, meanwhile, need to get back on track. If Jericho Jones can somehow find the patience to adjust to more offspeed pitches, Tech could get its powerful offense cranking again.
