Things to watch in Week 8 in the Southeastern Conference:
GAME OF THE WEEK
LSU (4-3, 2-2) visits No. 12 Mississippi (5-1, 2-1) in a West Division matchup. Ed Orgeron enters the first of his final five regular season games as LSU coach after he and the school agreed on Sunday that he would not return after this season.
In the Southeastern Conference, the coach on the hot seat can change from week to week.
Welcome, Dan Mullen.
Florida's man had a lot of explaining to do Saturday after the 20th-ranked Gators lost to LSU and last week's coach-in-big-trouble Ed Orgeron.
—Tyrion Davis-Price, LSU, rushed for school-record 287 yards and three TDs, and the Tigers’ banged-up defense produced four interceptions in a 49-42 victory over No. 20 Florida.
—Eric Barriere, Eastern Washington, threw for 600 yards and seven TDs in a 71-14 win over Idaho.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price and the Tiger's offensive line apparently have figured something out.
That could improve LSU's prospects for the balance of what has been a turbulent season.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) —
LSU running back John Emery Jr. is expected to miss the remainder of the season for academic reasons, coach Ed Orgeron said Monday.
Emery, a junior, was expected to compete to be the Tigers' starting running back this season, but has been ruled academically ineligible.
