LSU cancels practice amid threat of Isaac

The SportsXchange

The threat of Hurricane Isaac had prompted LSU to cancel practice ahead of Saturday's season opener against North Texas.

Les Miles told reporters that his team would "hunker down" in facilities around the campus.

"We recognize the fact that we are going to miss Wednesday's practice and have to try to do what we would normally do today on Thursday," Miles said.

Saturday's game remains scheduled to start at 6 p.m. ET. Miles said the storm would have to pass before a decision is made. Isaac was still approaching Baton Rouge.

The university had already postponed a Friday soccer match until Tuesday and a volleyball tournament scheduled for Friday and Saturday on campus was moved to Houston.
