LSU prepares for Auburn without Blue

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Les Miles and his Tigers went back to work Tuesday after a bomb scare on the LSU campus Monday put everything on hold, including practice for the second ranked Tigers.

The team worked on their game plan for the struggling Auburn Tigers. Missing from practice was the team's second leading rusher, Alfred Blue, one half of coach Miles' "shake and bake."

Blue hurt his knee in the third quarter of Saturday's win over Idaho. He will miss this weekend's game against Auburn and possibly several more games.

Blue has 270 rushing yards, second behind Kenny Hilliard, who leads the team with 303 rushing yards—including 8.3 yards a carry. Hilliard also has six rushing touchdowns.

LSU is blessed with great depth at running back, and while leading rusher Kenny Hilliard will get more carries, Michael Ford, Spencer Ware and Jeremy Hill will all see more action.

Hill saw his first action this weekend against the Vandals, rushing for 61 yards and two touchdowns.

Kickoff against Auburn this Saturday is at 6pm on ESPN.

    With offenses becoming increasingly explosive, plugging the holes is more imperative than ever. It's no surprise Alabama and Florida top the list, but the rest of the rankings may surprise you.
