BATON ROUGE - LSU continued to prepare for Saturdays season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette here Wednesday as the eighth-ranked Tigers went through a two-hour workout at the Charles McClendon Practice Facility. The Tigers will practice again on Thursday followed by a walk-thru in Tiger Stadium on Friday afternoon. Kickoff for Saturdays game is set for 7 p.m. in a sold out Tiger Stadium. "We got some good work in today and we went hard from start to finish," LSU coach Les Miles said after the workout. "It was a typical Wednesday practice. We are looking forward to finishing the week strong. We still have some work to do in the game plan, but well get it done over the next two days of practice." Against the Cajuns, the Tigers will face a squad who is coming off a 6-5 overall mark as ULL closed out the 2005 season with five straight wins. Saturdays game will also mark the second meeting between Miles and the Cajuns as he posted a 56-3 win over ULL in 2003. "They are a much better football team," Miles said when asked about this years ULL team compared to the one he faced as head coach at Oklahoma State in 2003. "They are better in all phases. On defense, they return eight starters who are all very capable guys. On offense, they have a big offensive line, very capable running back, two quarterbacks and a talented wide receivers crew that has been in the wings waiting to get on the field. This is a talented football team." Miles said the Tigers will go into the Louisiana-Lafayette contest in good shape health wise as wide receiver Craig Davis and running back Alley Broussard are both expected to see action. Both players have been limited at times during fall camp with injuries. "I think Buster (Craig Davis) will probably be ready to go, and I think Alley (Broussard) is getting healthier each day," Miles said. "I dont know to what extent we will use him or if we will get him on the field, but health wise I dont think he will be limited."
