It was a miserable day in Lexington on Sunday. Cold, breezy and bone-chilling rain fell for much of the game. But that didn't seem to bother Kentucky. The Wildcats jumped on LSU starting pitcher Eric Walker early and kept adding on as the game went for a 10-2 victory over the Tigers.

For the first time in a long time, an LSU spring game didn't feature a toss dive. Instead, we saw all kinds of pre-snap shifts, motion and a bunch of fake hand-offs. But it didn't produce many points, as defensive coordinator Dave Aranda had his guys ready.
The Purple team led the White team 7-3 when the game was halted 4:02 before halftime.

A proposal by Shreveport Representative Cedric Glover would put an end to official university beers. LSU and UL-Lafayette already have their own trademarked beers from local breweries. Glover says in Louisiana, you can’t drink under the age of 21, which applies to most college students. He says schools branding their own alcohol only encourages underage drinking.

Ole Miss hasn't won a series in Baton Rouge since 1982. The Rebels will have to wait a couple more years to do so, as LSU held on for a 3-2 win on Saturday to take the series against SEC rivals.
Freshman right-hander Eric Walker gave LSU another strong start on the mound and the bullpen did the rest to give the Tigers a 9-6 record at the halfway point of the league season.

Another study by LSU economist Dr. Loren Scott finds the return isn’t there when it comes to state’s film tax credits program as the report shows it causes a significant hit to Louisiana’s budget. Scott says the return of investment was 22% in 2016.

It's been a crazy LSU baseball season, but one thing you can count on is a good outing from freshman pitcher Eric Walker. The right-hander had his best start of his Tiger career as he tossed a complete game shutout in a 2-0 nothing win over Arkansas. LSU needed a masterful outing from Walker, because the Tigers offense could only muster six hits.

For the second straight start, LSU's Alex Lange pitched as well as you can expect an ace to pitch. But for the second straight outing it was not enough to help the Tigers get a win. The Bayou Bengals only mustered four hits in a 4-0 loss to Texas A&M.
It's LSU's fourth loss in the last five games and the Tigers fall to 4-3 in SEC play.
