LSU misses practice because of bomb threat

By  | 

A bomb threat at LSU that led university officials to evacuate the entire campus wound up forcing coach Les Miles to cancel a game-week practice for the second time in a month.

The second-ranked Tigers were permitted to return to campus and the football building Monday night, but Miles elected to hold only meetings and film review of last Saturday night's 63-14 victory over Idaho.

One practice also was cancelled several days before LSU's season opening win over North Texas because of Hurricane Isaac.

The threat was called in to the university late Monday morning. LSU opens its Southeastern Conference schedule at Auburn this Saturday.

Miles says he expects his team to make up some practice time later in the week and respond well to the disruption.
