METAIRIE, La. (WGNO) - Here's your weekend recap of all things Louisiana sports.
The Saints are 0- 3 in the preseason after their loss to the Steelers Friday. In the 27-14 loss to the Pittsburgh, Drew Brees didn't get sacked and completed nine of his 12 passes, including an awesome touchdown connection with Willie Snead, but Garrett Grayson struggled with consistency. He did well on the Tommylee Lewis touchdown, but followed that with two interceptions.
And the offensive line was down right offensive. They failed to learn from mistakes made in week two, leaving holes around Brees. There is, however, a silver lining. The running backs made progress from last week's game against Houston with more carries.
LSU kicks off its season in Wisconsin on Saturday at Lambeau. Catch that game at 2:30 p.m. on WGNO. In an interview with ESPN, college football's most talented running back, Leonard Fournette, said LSU has changed his life.
"I didn't realize how important LSU was to everybody until I got here," Fournette said. "You have the state of Louisiana in your hand."
From a kid living on a bridge after Hurricane Katrina to the NFL's brightest prospect, hopefully Louisiana can keep Fournette.
And today, on the 11th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, former LSU corner back and Arizona Cardinals' safety Tyrann Mathieu tweeted about the historic anniversary.
