LSU at West Virginia

Undefeated LSU faces a tough road test at West Virginia in Week 4.

LSU offense vs. West Virginia defense
• The Mountaineers must be ready for a physical battle because LSU offensive coordinator Greg Studrawa will look to establish a straight-ahead power run game. The Tigers have a deep, versatile offensive line, and RBs Spencer Ware and Michael Ford handle most of the carries. The 225-pound Ware is a determined runner with above-average vision, power and balance. West Virginia's starting defensive linemen should hold up initially but lack of depth on the inside will eventually become an issue. The LSU offensive line was inconsistent early but came together as the game wore on, a pattern that could become an issue for WVU if the game is close late.
