Leach Previews Home Opener in Weekly Press Conference

STARKVILLE. Miss. — Fresh off the 44-34 win over defending national champion LSU Tigers, head football coach Mike Leach held his weekly press conference on Monday to preview this week’s home opener against Arkansas.

When the Bulldogs unveiled their first official depth chart last Monday, one thing that stood out was an “OR” between quarterbacks K.J. Costello and Will Rogers. Leach said Rogers “wasn’t available” last week and “we’re really hoping for the best this week.”

The Bulldog offense torched LSU for 632 yards of total offense, including an SEC record 623 yards passing from Costello.
