LSU (20-9, 8-8) has been horrible away from home this season. The Tigers are 2-7 in true road games this season and have dropped two consecutive road games in SEC play. LSU, which has lost two of its past three games, is hoping to avoid a worse slide before the conference tournament starts next week.
