Can The Titans (-3.5) Take Down Joe Burrow And The Bengals?
LSU star guard Xavier Pinson is out and star forward Darius Days is available for today’s game against Tennessee, Tigers’ coach Will Wade revealed Friday and Saturday.
At Wade’s Friday press conference, the head coach said Pinson would be out for the game while Days was questionable.
Wade says Darius Days will be a game time decision and there’s a better chance than not that he’ll play. However he’s says that Xavier Pinson is unlikely to play tomorrow #LSU

Pinson got injured in the second half of LSU’s win over Tennessee two weeks ago, but has missed the subsequent three games.
Days injured his ankle in the first half of LSU’s loss at Alabama Wednesday and didn’t return.
The 6-foot-7 forward is second on the Tigers in scoring (13.5 PPG) while Pinson (10.9 PPG) is third in scoring.
Tennessee forward Josiah Jordan James is questionable after taking an elbow above his eye in Tuesday’s win at Vanderbilt.
The Vols are 5.5-point home favorites over No. 13 LSU. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. ET and ESPN is broadcasting the game.
