Week 2 is the home opener against Jacksonville State.

LSU coach Les Miles has suspended OG Josh Boutte for one game.

And along with the LSU announcement, we have the statement that The SEC commission Greg Sankey put out regarding the play:
“I have independently reviewed the play resulting in the ejection of Josh Boutte near the end of LSU’s game against Wisconsin on Saturday. The game officials correctly assessed a penalty and ejection for Mr. Boutte’s flagrant contact, which occurred well after the play had concluded. I have accepted the one-game suspension imposed by Les Miles and, because LSU has taken appropriate action, have determined that no additional penalty shall be imposed by the Conference office.”
