BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Les Miles says talking about a regular-season loss for the first time nearly a year-and-a-half is a miserable experience for the ninth-ranked LSU Tigers.
The coach says LSU (5-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) was stung by its 14-6 loss at Florida last weekend and understands it must play better in both the running and passing game if it hopes to beat No. 3 South Carolina (6-0, 4-0) in Tiger Stadium this Saturday night.
Miles says he's pleased with his players' effort, but adds they have to ``play smarter.''
LSU safety Eric Reid says playing the highly ranked Gamecocks this weekend leaves little time to make corrections, but also gives the Tigers a chance for the type of immediate redemption that will place them right back in the national title discussion.
