LSU Cancels Practice in Wake of Hurricane Isaac

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- LSU coach Les Miles is riding out Hurricane Isaac at the Tigers' football operations building, where he and members of his staff continue planning for Saturday night's scheduled home opener against North Texas.

The third-ranked Tigers were given the option of staying in their own apartments, at the football operations building or in Tiger Stadium.

Wednesday's practice has been cancelled, and Miles says he's hoping his players will be able to resume preparations for the Mean Green on Thursday, depending on the speed at which Isaac moves out of Baton Rouge and how much damage it leaves behind.

Miles says LSU's campus still had power as of Wednesday morning and LSU officials say the season opener remains on its original schedule of 6 p.m. Saturday, at least for now.
