An LSU student made a surprise visit home to New Orleans at the end of the weekend, but it wasn't to do laundry. Nicole Lea Boover, 19, allegedly drew a gun and fired shots at her mother on Sunday morning while at her home in Mid-City, according to officials. Boover's mother was not injured in the incident.

Cry of the Tiger: Fl Blinds LSU 14-6
By Chris Rinaldi
On Saturday, a Florida Gator team showed up to play SEC football, while LSU's coaching staff did everything it could do ensure that their more talented team lost. Atrocious play calling was highlighted by a refusal to run the ball, peculiarly, until the fourth quarter. Les Miles said that this game was for "red-blooded American men" to CBS's Tracy Wolfson in the pre-game and it turned out it was. Unfortunately, that description was only apt for Florida.
