ASU-LSU game still on despite threat of storm

Things could get messy this weekend in Baton Rouge, La.

Predictions have suggested that at some point, Tropical Storm Gustav could smack into Louisiana, possibly causing problems for the Appalachian State-LSU opener there.

On Wednesday, Tigers athletic director Joe Alleva met with the Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and staff from the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness to discuss the situation.

Currently, there is no change in the game's starting time of 5 p.m. (EDT), but LSU and state officials are watching the storm closely. Latest projections from the Weather Channel have the storm not arriving until Monday or Tuesday.

We'll let you know if anything changes.

-Also, a limited number of reserved seats for Appalachian State's home opener against Jacksonville Sept. 6 have become available and can be purchased online at, by phone at (828) 262-2079 or in person at the ASU athletics ticket office in the Holmes Center in Boone.

Appy must have some good weed for you guys to think you can beat LSU when Wofford kicked your butts all over its tiny stadium last year. Ga Southern too. What don't those games come up with the Michigan babble?
