"It's going to be exciting," LSU coach Les Miles said of the spring game. "There are some big plays to be made out there. I think our defense looks good. It's going to be a great spring game; I'm really looking forward to it.
"I think we've divided the teams pretty well. I think you will find that there will be some guys playing on both teams, but I don't think that one team will out-man the other. Our running backs will have to play on both teams so neither team will have an advantage at that position."
The White squad has an apparent edge on the offensive line as projected starters Joseph Barksdale, Josh Dworaczyk, P.J. Lonergan and Alex Hurst are all listed on the White roster. Other members of the White offense include Russell Shepard, Terrence Toliver, Stevan Ridley and Richard Murphy.
The spring game concludes four weeks of work that has seen the Tigers practice 15 times during that span. Following Saturday's game, the Tigers will turn their attention to the offseason strength and conditioning program with an eye on the fall.
"We've had a really good spring," Miles said. "I think we have improved as a team in all three phases of the game. I like this team and I like the way they come to work each day. We have a nice blend of veterans and young guys and I'm excited about watching them go out and compete in front of the fans in Tiger Stadium tomorrow."
