Tyrann Mathieu To Transfer To McNeese State, Per Josh Jasper

Just a few hours after LSU officially announced they'd parted ways with Heisman runner-up Tyrann Mathieu for an undisclosed violation of team rules, LSU kicker Josh Jasper is Tweeting that the Honey Badger has already landed at nearby McNeese State, a FCS program in Lake Charles, Louisiana:

At the moment there's no other confirmation that Mathieu has officially landed at McNeese than Jasper's Tweet, but the Cowboys - just 130 miles west of Baton Rogue on Interstate 10 - are a sensible destination for the St. Augustine High School graduate and New Orleans resident. McNeese has been a rotating opponent for LSU in recent years, as the Tigers usually keep one in-state opponent on the schedule each season.

McNeese State is currently ranked 27th among FCS programs for the 2012 season according to Phil Steele. The Cowboys open their schedule August 30 against Middle Tennessee State - and if Mathieu has joined the team, he'll play three games against in-state opponents (Northwestern State, Nichols and Southeastern Louisiana) in 2012.
