Five things to watch this week in college football. 1. Louisiana State had better hope after Saturday night's lethargic home win over sub-division Towson that it was just caught looking ahead to next weekend's huge Southeastern Conference showdown at No. 10 Florida. That now makes two straight bumpy outings for LSU, which dropped in the polls after a 12-10 win at Auburn. 2. West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, who threw for 656 yards and eight touchdowns against Baylor, should get a much stiffer test when the Mountaineers make their Big 12 Conference road debut in Austin.
