LSU vs. Kent State Preview: Four Burning Questions
Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Spor

LSU will play a cupcake for the second straight week on Saturday night in Death Valley. This time, Kent State will make the journey to Baton Rouge. 

While Tigers head coach Les Miles battles bad press off the field over a Sports Illustrated investigation of his possible past infractions at Oklahoma State, he will need to keep his team focused for a final softy tune-up before playing five straight SEC opponents. 

Last season, Kent State finished 11-3 and was one win away from possibly playing in a BCS bowl.

Head coach Darrell Hazell left Kent State for the same position at Purdue. The Golden Flashes responded by hiring former Arkansas defensive coordinator Paul Haynes as their new head coach 

Kent State has started the season sluggish, beating Liberty, 17-10, which finished 6-5 in the Big South Conference last season. The Golden Flashes were then thumped at home by Bowling Green, 41-22, last week.  

The Tigers should be able to coast through this game easily, especially after looking so sharp against the University of Alabama-Birmingham last week.
