LSU started the week with a 4-1 defeat to Louisiana-Lafayette. The game was called in the 5th inning due to rain.

The Tigers took two-out-of-three against Yale. LSU won the first two games of the series (19-0, 3-0) before dropping the series finale 8-7 on Sunday.

The Tigers (9-2) will take Monday off before traveling to Natchitoches, La. to face Northwestern State Tuesday. The game has been moved to 3:30 p.m. CT due to a forecast of extremely cold temperatures after sundown.
