 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Why, here's a familiar early season scenario for eighth-ranked LSU.
A non-conference team enters Death Valley on Saturday night as a more-than five-touchdown underdog.
Still, college football powerhouses are vulnerable to upsets, and players at Kent State (1-1), which beat a ranked team last year, ask why they shouldn't be the ones to end LSU's 43-game regular season winning streak against non-conference opponents.
Kent state center Phil Huffs says ``crazier stuff has happened.''
The Tigers (2-0) are trying to build on early successes against TCU and UAB before their Southeastern Conference slate begins next week against Auburn.
So LSU, which is developing its passing game under new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, and which has a lot of new, young faces on defense, needs to reach top form in short order.
