How to watch LSU vs. Louisiana-Monroe: NCAA Football live stream info, TV channel, time, game odds

Through 3 Quarters

The LSU Tigers are flexing their muscles against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks, showing why they were favored to win all along. After three quarters it’s looking more and more like LSU’s high-powered offense is just too much for Louisiana-Monroe as the Tigers lead 24-7. LSU has been led by QB Max Johnson, who so far has passed for two TDs and 319 yards on 30 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.

LSU has been riding high on the performance of Johnson, who has passed for two TDs and 319 yards on 30 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Johnson hadn’t helped his team much against the Arkansas Razorbacks last week, so this is a nice turnaround for him.

LSU is struggling to protect the pocket and have allowed three sacks. They are going to have to protect the quarterback better if they want to hold on to their lead.

What to Know

The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks need to shore up a defense that is allowing 35.4 points per game before their contest on Saturday. They will square off against the LSU Tigers at 9 p.m. ET at Tiger Stadium. These two teams are out to turn their luck around after having lost tight contests in their previous games.

It was a hard-fought matchup, but Louisiana-Monroe had to settle for a 27-24 defeat against the Arkansas State Red Wolves last week. Louisiana-Monroe’s loss came about despite a quality game from WR Malik Jackson, who rushed for two TDs and 166 yards on 22 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the contest was Jackson’s 75-yard touchdown rush in the third quarter. Jackson’s sharp performance set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.

Speaking of close games: LSU fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the Arkansas Razorbacks last week but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 16-13. QB Garrett Nussmeier had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw two interceptions with only 179 yards passing.

The Warhawks are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.

The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 4-6. Louisiana-Monroe and LSU are both 2-3 after wins this season, but that symmetry won’t hold for long.
