BATON ROUGE, La. ... -blue.html . -- The 20th-ranked LSU Tigers are about to get a better idea of how concerned they should be about their quarterback play.Danny Etling restored a measure of hope to the Death Valley faithful when he relieved season-opening starter Brandon Harris and produced three straight touchdown drives in a victory over Jacksonville State last weekend. Hes bound to get a tougher test on Saturday night when LSU (1-1) opens Southeastern Conference play by hosting Mississippi State (1-1, 1-0).LSU coach Les Miles said his goals this week have included exposing Etling to the things we need to have him do and allow him to show us that he can continue to do what hes done.But with much still unknown about what Etling can do in SEC play, Miles has been careful not to marginalize Harris, who spent all of last season as the starter and took first-team snaps throughout spring practice and preseason camp in August.His talents and abilities need to be prepared to go into the game and play significant snaps, Miles said of Harris. We certainly have visited with him and would think that he understands his role.Etling completed six of his first eight passes for 100 yards, including a 46-yard touchdown strike, but finished 6-of-14 after missing on all six of his second-half passes with two turnovers -- an interception and fumble.Mississippi State, which labored through a stunning, season-opening loss to South Alabama, rebounded with a 27-14 win in their SEC opener against South Carolina last weekend. That victory gave the Bulldogs more confidence in sophomore quarterback, Nick Fitzgerald, who can give defenses fits with his feet.Fitzgeralds 195 yards rushing against the Gamecocks set a school record and brought about comparisons to former Bulldogs star QB Dak Prescott.Hes faster than Dak and a little bit more explosive than Dak with the ball in his hands, Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said. I dont know if hes as physical as Dak was. Its a little different style of running.---Some other things to know about the Mississippi State-LSU matchup on Saturday:JEFFERSONS SURGE: Mississippi State defensive lineman A.J. Jefferson leads the SEC with six tackles for a loss and is tied for the league lead with three sacks through two games. The 6-foot-3, 280-pound senior had a breakout season in 2015 with 13+ tackles for a loss and five sacks, but might dwarf those numbers this fall. Hes a hard worker, Mullen said of Jefferson. Maybe hes not one of the freakier athletes that people have in the league. He kind of got it done through development and hard work.FOURNETTES FATE: LSU star running back Leonard Fournette, who sat out last weekends victory to rest his bruised left ankle, is expected to be in uniform. Fournette gained 138 yards in LSUs season opening loss to Wisconsin, but might have a lessened workload if he plays against MSU. Miles said LSU coaches are aware of Fournettes tender ankle. LSU has that luxury. Fournettes backup, sophomore Derrius Guice, rushed for 155 yards in his first career start last weekend.BEHIND THE LINE: Mississippi States defense has 22 tackles for a loss already this season, which ranks first in the SEC and third nationally. The Bulldogs had 11 TFLs against both South Alabama and South Carolina. Theyve also allowed a mere 60 net yards rushing per game. If you are not careful, Mississippi State will eat your lunch, LSU fullback J.D. Moore said. They are built to stop the run.WHITES RETURN: LSU cornerback TreDavious Whites decision not to turn pro and return for his senior season is already paying big dividends for the Tigers. White has scored a touchdown each on defense (interception return) and special teams (punt return).BOUTTES BACK: LSU starting guard Josh Boutte has returned from a one-game suspension stemming from his flagrant foul late in LSUs loss to Wisconsin. Miles said he hopes Boutte solidifies an offensive line that played well in last weekends win.---AP Sports Writer David Brandt in Starkville, Mississippi, contributed to this report.---AP College Football: ... 6-005.html . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. ... 3-015.html . The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. ... -grey.html .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. OAKLAND, Calif. -- With three wins in four games since the All-Star break against two of the hottest teams in the majors, the Athletics are building some momentum.Theyve still got quite a ways to go to dig themselves out of the cellar in the AL West. Still, its as good a streak as manager Bob Melvin could have expected after a disappointing first half.Yonder Alonso drove in three runs with a pair of two-out hits to back Kendall Gravemans fifth consecutive win, and Oakland Athletics beat the Houston Astros 7-4 on Monday night.Guys are putting up some numbers now, Graveman said. You could go one to nine no matter whos in there, and I think a lot of guys are starting to feel comfortable at the plate. Us as starters are just trying to keep them in ballgames and we know theyre going to put up runs.Khris Davis hit his fourth home run in three games, Marcus Semien had two hits and scored twice while Ryon Healy added an RBI double for the As.Oakland has won three of four since the All-Star break.Its just timely hitting, Davis said. When we get those crooked numbers, our pitchers are doing a great job of throwing up a zero and getting us back in. That momentum is huge.Alonso doubled in a run in the second inning then added a two-run single as part of five-run fourth when the As sent 12 men to the plate. The Astros walked five batters in the inning, two with the bases loaded.Graveman (6-6) allowed three runs over seven innings to earn his second straight win over Houston. The right-hander, who also beat the Astros in his final start before the break, struck out five and walked one.Dyan Dull retired three batters and Ryan Madson pitched the ninth for his 20th save.Marwin Gonzalez homered for the second time in three games for Houston.The As got plenty of help from the Astros pitching.Starter Mike Fiers allowed six runs over 3 2/3 innings to remain winless in five career starts against Oakland. Fiers (6-4) fanned five and walk three, including two in the fourth.Michael Feliz replaced Fiers and walked threee consecutive batters including Josh Reddick and Danny Valencia with the bases loaded. ... white.html. Reddick had struck out swinging in his first two at-bats before drawing a four-pitch walk to force in Healy.Davis hit his 23rd home run this season off Scott Feldman in the seventh.We got beat by a big inning, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. Its frustrating because we had four or five walks in that inning.. They kept putting up quality at-bats and we couldnt close the inning out.Houston took a 2-1 lead in the top of the fourth when Carlos Correa scored an unearned run on a throwing error by Healy, Oaklands rookie third baseman. As manager Bob Melvin tried to argue that Correa interfered with Healy while running from second to third on the play.FIERS, GOMEZ SQUABBLEFiers was not happy about being pulled from the game in the fourth and exchanged words with Hinch. Fiers later got into it with teammate Carlos Gomez as the two went face to face in the Astros dugout. I cant show that much emotion in the dugout so he was just letting me know that if I had to say something or act, take it inside and do it without anybody watching, which hes right, Fiers said. I think my emotions got the best of me. I need to be more professional about what Im doing out there on the field and in the game.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: Right-hander Nick Tepesch was claimed off waivers by the Royals. Tepesch had been designated for assignment when Oakland needed to clear room for 3B Ryon Healy last week.UP NEXTAstros: LHP Dallas Keuchel (6-9) makes his second consecutive start against Oakland on Tuesday at the Coliseum. The reigning AL Cy Young winner allowed one run over seven innings against the As in his final outing before the All-Star break.Athletics: Dillon Overton (1-1) will be called up from Triple-A Nashville to start against Houston. This is the rookie left-handers second stint in the majors.
