Washington Vs. LSU 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

Despite a dominating 41-14 victory over North Texas in their debut, the LSU Tigers fell from No. 1 to No. 3 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll as many perceived the wins of the USC Trojans and Alabama Crimson Tide to be more impressive. In the second week of the season, though, the challenge will be a little tougher for all three teams, including the Tigers who will face the Washington Huskies on Saturday.

Despite a strong performance by the Huskies in their opener against the San Diego State Aztecs, they will still be heavy underdogs when they travel to Baton Rouge to take on LSU. Led by Keith Price's 25-of-35 passing for 222 yards and a touchdown, the Huskies earned a 21-12 victory over SDSU that garnered some votes in the AP Poll and nearly enough votes to earn a ranking in the Coaches' Poll.

The Tigers, though, are a much bigger test than SDSU, led by Zach Mettenberger, a potent rushing attack and one of the nation's fiercest defenses.

Game time/date: 6 p.m. CT, Saturday

Location: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, LA

TV Schedule/Streaming: ESPN

Odds: LSU favored by 23 points.
