  • No. 12 LSU unhappy with passing game as No. 7 Auburn looms

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Preseason talk about LSU relying more on its passing game this season has transitioned into a search for explanations about why that hasn't happened during the 12th-ranked Tigers' first two games.New quarterback Joe Burrow has completed fewer than half of his pass attempts for 291 yards so far. LSU might be in trouble if not for the emergence of senior running back Nick Brossette, who has eclipsed the 100-yard mark in victories over Miami and Southeastern Lo...

  • Saints set to add Smith, Meredith to potent passing game

    METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints record-setting quarterback Drew Brees has his three most productive receiving targets back from last season — and then some.The addition of free agent Cameron Meredith and rookie Tre'Quan Smith, combined with the four-game suspension of 2017 rushing leader Mark Ingram, has set the stage for the Saints to revert to a more pass-heavy attack — if they choose.Last season, Brees' 4,334 yards passing were his fewest as a Saint, but that could be at...

(AP) — LSU coach Ed Orgeron says edge pass rusher K'Lavon Chaisson will miss the rest if the season because of a knee injury during a season-opening victory over Miami.Chaisson was a prized 2017 recruit who played often as a freshman reserve and entered his sophomore campaign as the team's premier pass-rushing outside linebacker.
