Editor's note: This week we continue to break down each of LSU's position groups as we prepare for the Tigers to open preseason practice in early August. After examining the offensive positions last week, today we focus on the linebackers.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- One of the leading questions for LSU's spring practice is how the Tigers' defense might function differently with Kevin Steele as defensive coordinator. We probably won't have an answer there until a few weeks into the season -- LSU has no incentive to reveal anything before then -- but here's a small twist.
With three new assistant coaches and four early enrollees in the fold, LSU is scheduled to open spring practice on Saturday. As is the case each spring, there are a number of positions that are up for the grabs for the Tigers.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU's coaching staff had not fully completed its 2015 signing class before 2016 was already front-and-center in the coaches' minds. Only three days after national signing day, LSU will stage its "Boys From the Boot" recruiting weekend where it will host many of the state's up-and-coming prospects -- so getting the state's top talent on campus this weekend became an immediate top priority.

BATON ROUGE, La. - Could this be the week that Arkansas ends its 17-game losing streak in SEC play? The oddsmakers in Las Vegas seem to think so, setting the Razorbacks (4-5, 0-5 SEC) as a narrow favorite to beat No.
Every year the Alabama-LSU game is one of most highly anticipated games of the year. The two teams, for the most part, have been the most dominant teams in the SEC West. With Auburn's success the past two years and the emergence of Ole Miss and Mississippi State, the competitive division is arguably the toughest in college football.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- A player's career is often defined by performances in the biggest games. There are no bigger games at LSU than the ones against Alabama. Will Leonard Fournette, Kendell Beckwith or Tre'Davious White become the next Tigers to make their mark in a win against the Crimson Tide?
BATON ROUGE, La. -- In the first, second and fourth quarters last Saturday, Mississippi State's offense converted just one out of nine third downs. But in the Bulldogs' key third-quarter run - a stretch where they pushed their lead from 17-10 to 34-10 - State's offense didn't just convert on third down, it made some of its biggest plays of the entire game.
