Miles not promising time for backups vs Demons
Question of the Day
Northwestern’s ability to score its first points against LSU will hinge on quarterback Brad Henderson. Against Delta State, he did not start but wound up leading the Demons to four scores in their first five offensive series of the second half, completing his first 13 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown. The performance helped the Demons overcome a 17-0 halftime deficit for a 24-23 win.
Henderson is slated to start this week after junior quarterback Paul Harris, who started the season opener but struggled, was suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team. Peveto has not said when Harris will be reinstated.
What matters to Peveto most this weekend is that his players relish the experience of playing in Tiger Stadium, compete hard, get better _ and stay healthy with their entire Southland Conference schedule still to play.
“If you’re a football player that grew up in Louisiana, or anywhere, really, in the Southeast, you understand SEC football and LSU football. So it’s going to be a great opportunity,” Peveto said. “I can try to describe it, but until our guys hit that field and experience the thrill of Tiger Stadium, what I say won’t do it justice.
“Hopefully, we can earn their respect with the way we compete.”
