The home fans should be happy on Saturday. They’ll get a chance to see the 2013 LSU Tigers take the field inside Tigers Stadium. LSU has been pretty good in recent years in home opening games. Their last loss was in 2005 against Tennessee. The last time they lost a non-conference home opener was in 2000. Nick Saban was the head coach then and ironically the loss was to the same team they’ll face weekend.

“To us, our opponents remain nameless and faceless,” LSU junior wide receiver Jarvis Landry said Tuesday.

Sure, it has been a while and a lot has changed since the UAB Blazers crashed the party in Baton Rouge 13 years ago. The Tiger players were about seven or eight years old.

“I had no idea,” sophomore Jalen Collins said when asked if he knew UAB defeated LSU 13-10 in 2000.

“Nope, no clue,” added Landry.

But, LSU fans remember the night quite well.

“One of my friends told me that last night. He is a diehard LSU fan. He said ‘you know we never forget’. ‘And I was like what are you talking about?’ ‘He said UAB beat LSU the last time they played.’ ‘I was like no way,’” freshman kicker Colby Delahoussaye recalled.

LSU is a 35-point favorite to win the game against UAB. The 90,000-plus fans sweating in the seats would probably have a hard time stomaching anything but a blowout win, especially when you add in home field advantage. That will make it a tough place for UAB to pull off another upset.

“Each game means a lot. We are on the road to California this year so we need every game," defensive tackle Ego Ferguson said.

LSU head coach Les Miles wouldn’t say if Jeremy Hill would get in the game Saturday. His status remains unclear.

The game will be televised on ESPNU.
