LSU, winners of nine straight, brings a 10-1 mark into Saturday's title game. The Bulldogs are 9-2 overall and ranked No. 13 in the nation. The game will serve as a rematch of the 2003 SEC title game, a contest LSU won by a 34-13 count.
Kickoff for Saturday's title game, a contest that will send the winner into the Nokia Sugar Bowl, is set for 5:05 CST at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. LSU has won four straight games in the Georgia Dome, two of which were SEC Championship Game.
"We've had a good week of preparation," LSU coach Les Miles said. "After giving the team the weekend off following the Arkansas game on Friday, the players have looked fresh this week in practice and I think it's showed with the type of practices we've had."
Miles also used Wednesday's workout to pipe in noise to the facility, something that LSU has done for road games this year.
"We piped in sound again today, but it's the first time this year we've done it indoors," Miles said. "We are preparing for what could be a very noisy indoor arena on Saturday."
Miles complimented the efforts of running backs Joseph Addai and Justin Vincent in practice this week, saying both players, "look good and look faster than they've been."
Vincent returns to the Georgia Dome for the first time since rushing for an SEC Championship Game record 201 yards in LSU's win over Georgia in 2001. Vincent went on to earn MVP honors in the contest as LSU claimed its second league title in three years.
The Tigers will practice again on Thursday before departing for Atlanta at 11 a.m. on Friday. The Tigers will hold a walk-thru at the Georgia Dome on Friday afternoon.
