KICKOFF: at Husky Stadium, 7:30 p.m.
Records: Both 0-0
Overview: New Washington coach Steve Sarkisian had to laugh when he saw the first game on the Huskies’ schedule. Not only did his new athletic director provide a challenging debut, Sarkisian will experience something he never did in his years as an assistant at Southern California. “I kind of got the chuckle because, for me, coming from ’SC, there was always banter among the fans about ’SC and LSU should’ve been playing, (from) years ago when we kind of split the national title.” Sarkisian and his Huskies begin a new era at home tonight as a huge underdog to No. 11 LSU. Tigers fans have swarmed into Seattle, showing up as early as Wednesday on the longest road trip in the history of LSU football, 2,550 miles. Almost 15,000 LSU fans are expected inside Husky Stadium. – AP
