LSU, Kansas State go head-to-head at NRG Stadium in Texas Bowl

The game will kickoff at 8 p.m. and the roof will be closed.

HOUSTON — LSU looks to extend its winning streak to three games behind interim coach Brad Davis in tonight's Texas Bowl at NRG Stadium. 

Ed Orgeron reached a separation agreement with the team in October and chose not to coach the bowl game, and new coach Brian Kelly has been working to assemble his staff. 

Quarterback Skylar Thompson returns from an injury to lead Kansas State, which looks to snap a two-game skid. A key matchup will be whoever starts at QB for LSU against Kansas State's pass defense.

So far, Davis hasn't said who will start at QB for the Tigers. Myles Brennan is injured and Max Johnson transferred to Texas A&M. Freshman Garrett Nussmeier was listed first on a depth chart released this week but it’s unclear if he’ll play because one more game would burn his redshirt year.
