ORLANDO - LSU continued its preparation for the Louisville Cardinals at practice, and the Tigers enjoyed an evening at Disney's Magic Kingdom during their first full day in Orlando Wednesday.

Head Coach Ed Orgeron led a spirited practice at Celebration High School in the Florida heat as temperatures reached the mid 80's. The team participated in "No Turnover Wednesday" for the offense and "Turnover Wednesday" for the defense.

LSU and Louisville kick off at 10 a.m. CT on Saturday at the Camping World Stadium. The game, which is the first-ever meeting between the teams in football, will be televised on ABC.

"We have had fun spending time with each other for the final time," defensive back Donte Jackson said. "We are preparing hard for Louisville and are ready for Saturday.

After the two-plus hour practice, the players took a short ride to Magic Kingdom to enjoy their second night in Orlando.

"It’s great to have some fun, enjoy time with my teammates and just act like a kid for a while," quarterback Danny Etling said. "Coming to Disney definitely adds some excitement to the bowl game."

The team will practice Thursday in the final full practice before Saturday's game against the Cardinals. The players and coaching staff will then participate in the Day for Kids at Tinker Field near Camping World Stadium.
