In just three more days the No. 12 ranked LSU Tigers are set to open the 2013 season against No. 20 TCU in the Cowboys Classic.

With the game getting so close, the playing status of LSU star running back Jeremy Hill is still up in the air.

ESPN is reporting:

Les Miles is keeping TCU guessing about whether LSU running back Jeremy Hill, the Tigers' leading rusher last season, will play in Saturday night's season opener.

The Tigers' coach said Monday that Hill will miss some playing time because of his arrest in late April.


However, Miles is not specifying when Hill might serve that punishment, or how long the duration might be.

"Jeremy Hill is going to sustain discipline," Miles said. "We said earlier that ... he would be withheld from play. That's going to take place. Our discipline will be internal at this point, and I don't think we have much further to say."


Asked whether Hill would travel to Dallas for No. 12 LSU's matchup with the 20th-ranked Horned Frogs, Miles remained vague.

No. 12 LSU will take on No. 20 TCU in the Cowboys Classic this Saturday, August 31st. The game will kickoff at 8 p.m. Central time and it will be nationally televised by ESPN.
