LSU is set to travel to Columbia to face Missouri this Saturday at 11 a.m. CT due to Hurricane Delta. The game was originally set to take place at 8 a.m. in Tiger Stadium, but due to the pending threat of the storm, the school announced the matchup’s relocation Wednesday morning.
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron said that despite the venue switch, the Tigers still have the same goal.
“We’re going to travel to Missouri, don’t blink, and, hopefully, we can get us a big road win,” Orgeron said.
Orgeron also said he was glad the game was shifted to an early kickoff.
“I do believe that it would have been very difficult to play an 8 O’clock game and travel back… come back Sunday morning at 4 O’clock,” Orgeron said. “…Talking to our trainer, it takes two days to recover. Playing an 11 O’clock game, we’re going to be back in Baton Rouge around 6 or 7 O’clock at night. I think our team and our coaches will get more rest. I think it’s a big advantage for us.”
Orgeron said the Tigers schedule this week won’t change except for potentially leaving Baton Rouge Thursday night and practicing in Missouri Friday.
