LSU football is in the news every day, and the Bayou Bengal Briefing is here to keep you updated with the latest headlines five mornings a week. Join us every Monday through Friday for the biggest news on Tigers football, recruiting, baseball and more. Enjoy!

In World Series news

With the football team on a bye this week, let’s open the Bayou Bengal Briefing on this fine Thursday morning with some baseball news.

Former LSU shortstop and Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman has dominated the first two games of the 2017 World Series. In Game 1, the phenom hit a home run off Clayton Kershaw, the best pitcher in baseball for the better part of a decade. Bregman followed that performance with a 2-for-6 hitting line in the Astros’ win Wednesday. He also knocked in a run and scored once.

Bregman is only hitting .212 this postseason, thanks to underwhelming performances in the division and championship series. But in two games in the Fall Classic, the former Tiger is hitting .300 with a home run, 2 RBI and 2 runs scored.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to LSU fans. In the 2015 College World Series, Bregman hit 7 of 13 with 3 runs scored and a stolen base. Unfortunately for the Tigers, Bregman’s hot streak couldn’t prevent the team from being bounced after three games in Omaha.

Still, it’s encouraging to see Bregman’s clutch skills carry over into the big leagues. If he couldn’t win a ring in Baton Rouge, winning one in Houston is a nice consolation prize.

Catching up with the recruits

With football news being kind of slow this week, recruiting has taken the forefront. Here are a few recruiting headlines you might’ve missed Wednesday:

Can LSU pull two 5-star cornerbacks in the same class? How about a 5-star offensive lineman? Will he stay committed? Want to watch midseason highlights for a prime LSU commit? You can. LSU offered a scholarship to a quarterback. That’s always exciting. Following up

In the Bayou Bengal Briefing on Wednesday, we talked about coach Ed Orgeron’s comments on Donte Jackson and Kevin Toliver II and how he thinks they’ll be in the NFL next year. SEC Country asked Jackson to respond to those comments Wednesday. You can read his full thoughts here.

For an abridged version, here is my favorite quote of his:

“Coach O knows the talent he has. He’s going to do a great job trying to get a lot of guys to stay and not leave early. But that’s all I can really say about that. I don’t know. There’s a lot of time. It’s going to be a big decision come January for me and my family. That’s all I really have to say about that.”

For the first time ever, Jackson was quiet. That’s a rare occurrence.

Watch my face

As is the case every Wednesday, Alex Hickey and I posted our weekly Sound Off video, highlighting the three biggest topics in LSU football for the week at large.

This week, Alex and I talked about Derrius Guice and Darrel Williams, Arden Key and preparing for a dominant Alabama team. Watch the full video below and check back to SEC Country every week for more editions of Sound Off.

Elsewhere in the SEC

Ever wonder what’s going on at Alabama? One of the perks of writing for a site such as SEC Country is you never have to be left wondering. Our Alabama reporters over at SECCountry.com/Alabama are doing great work getting people prepared for the game next week.

Here are a few stories you might be interested in:

Who is Alabama’s biggest surprise and who is ready to break loose? Nick Saban wants to improve Alabama’s special teams Injury updates, position changes and questions highlight Bama’s bye week practices Who would play Nick Saban in a movie? SEC Country wonders Today in made-up holidays

Because logic doesn’t seem to be important anymore, Oct. 26 is “National Pumpkin Day.” Not five days from now. Not the day most directly associated with pumpkins. No, Oct. 26, five days before Halloween. Sure. Sure. Fine. Sure. Whatever.

Let’s celebrate pumpkins Thursday. Let’s celebrate pumpkins and get it all out of our system before Halloween even comes to make real holidays stink more. Good plan? Sure. Let’s do it.

This is frustrating. Made-up holidays are exhausting. The timing on this is awful. Stupid holidays.
