LSU (2-1) returns to Tiger Stadium on Saturday night to host New Mexico (2-1) at 6:30 pm on SECN+/ESPN+. Saturday's game will be the first-ever matchup between the two schools. Per

Riding a two-game winning streak after defeating SEC West foe Mississippi State to open conference play, head coach Brian Kelly wants to use the victory has a springboard. There’s no settling in sight, just laser focus, attention to detail and consistency in preparation with the intent to build on the success of last weekend.

“Now we have to look toward persistence and consistency,” Kelly said. “That means coming back after a good win and putting together a complete performance. Our expectations and standards are that we have a great week of preparation.”

Malik Nabers has personified perseverance since Week 1. The sophomore receiver couldn’t be stopped in the Tigers’ second half comeback with six receptions for 76 yards, including a key 4th-and-3 conversion to help Daniels and the offense extend the lead with a late touchdown.

“He’s been able to focus, refocus and move on to the next play,” Kelly said of Nabers. “That’s a great quality to have. You’re going to have some adversity – he’s had it, dealt with it, and he’s stronger for it. He’s been really good.”
