LSU football is preparing to take on interim head coach Brady Hoke's Tennessee Volunteers this weekend.

The Tigers starting kicker, Connor Culp, struggled against Arkansas, missing a field goal and two extra point kicks.

Head coach Ed Orgeron says Culp "has been perfect all week."

Orgeron had some praise for running back Darrel Williams, who has over 600 hundreds and 6 touchdowns on the season.

"I think Darrel's best attribute is his character," Orgeron said. "He is a great human being."

Orgeron said that linebacker Arden Key would be questionable this weekend.

Key moved to tie Gabe Northern in career sack ratings, with a total of 21. 

Another lineman, Donnie Alexander, is also questionable for Saturday.

Alexander had a career high 12 tackles against the Razorbacks.

Offensive tackle KJ Malone remains questionable.

The Tigers have had depth issues this season, having to start several freshman.

"For us to start two freshman on the offensive line has been unbelievable," Orgeron said. "Those guys have made tremendous improvement."

One freshman who stands out, Grant Delpit.

"He is like a veteran out there," Orgeron said. "He has done very well."

The Tigers travel to Knoxville and kick off is set for 6 P. M. Saturday night.
