The LSU-Texas game has yet to kick off, but fireworks have already been set off at Royal-Memorial Stadium.
Ahead of one of the season’s highly-anticipated match-ups, some LSU and Texas players had to be separated during warm-ups. A few Tigers reportedly drank from water bottles on UT’s sideline. Defensive backs on the Texas roster contributed to the pregame trash talk by wearing their “There’s Only One DBU” shirts during warm-ups.

A couple of LSU players just walked over to the Texas sideline and drank from the Longhorns water bottles. It was no accident.

I don't know if every LSU position group runs a lap around the playing field before each game, but each one that has done it continually finds a way to get into some verbal altercations with Texas players.

The Longhorns and Texas saved any physical altercations for the game. LSU and Texas are ranked sixth and ninth in the AP’s football poll.
