“Oregon State is a very formidable opponent,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “Obviously, things didn't go very well for us the other night, but I don't think they're 12 runs better than us; I think things just got out of hand. We're glad to have another chance. We're among the last four teams standing, and we're aware of the challenge that is in front of us.”
