BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

The LSU Tigers are hoping to rebound after last week's disappointing loss against Wisconsin at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

The Tigers are anxious to right the ship as they welcome in FCS foe Jacksonville State.

Saturday's contest is also the home opener for the Tigers and the first ever meeting on the gridiron between the schools. 

Kickoff was set for 6:30 p.m. but a lightning delay has pushed back the start time.
