Autumn has finally arrived in Louisiana. There's a chill in the air, and the high school football playoffs have moved into the second round. There are still plenty of games involving LSU commits and prospects, as teams move closer to The Dome.
Tonight, I'll travel to Breaux Bridge to get a glimpse of John Diarse and Laurence Jones as their Neville team makes a long journey to battle the other Tigers. These two teams met in last year's semifinals with Neville squeaking out a 16-7 victory.
Austin Cooper will travel to New Orleans to see Chuck Baker and Salmen square off against McDonogh #35.
Here's the rundown of the Louisiana playoff games involving LSU prospects, followed by where the out-of-state commits for 2013, 2014 and 2015 will be playing this weekend.
