When the LSU Tigers take on the Clemson Tigers in the Chick-fil-A Bowl next week, they’ll do so without sophomore punter Brad Wing. The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported this morning that a source inside the LSU athletic department had confirmed that Wing would not play in the game.
The website TigerRag.com is reporting that Wing’s suspension follows a failed drug test. Wing was fourth in the SEC in punting average this season at 44.8 yards per boot. He was second in the league last year with a 44.3 average.
Backup punter Jamie Keehn — coincidentally an Australian like Wing — will likely take over for the Tigers in Atlanta. He punted three times against North Texas this season for an average of 41.0 yards per kick.
