As the University of Washington is set to face 3rd ranked LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge on Saturday, it appears that Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian decided he needed something to motivate his players.
Back on Tuesday, coach Sark brought an actual caged tiger to practice and kept it on the sidelines for the players to look at.
The below photo shows the coach starring it down and well, maybe becoming one with the tiger to pull off the upset:

LSU dismissed its starting corner back, Tyrann Mathieu, from its football team on August 10th, for a violation of team and school rules. Mathieu then enrolled in a Houston rehab center in lieu of transferring to another school.
Mathieu was not kicked out of LSU and has since re-enrolled at the school. The Honey Badger was spotted in class a few days ago and then at LSU’s game...
Week 1 provided a number of surprises but few upsets. The headlines of the week included Alabama's thrashing of Michigan, Oklahoma State's record-setting 84-0 humiliation of Savannah State, a 736-yard passing effort from Pision III quarterback Sam Durley and Pittsburgh's unprecedented loss to FCS program Youngstown State.

When Tyrann Mathieu checked into rehab last month we speculated that he'd be back in a Tigers uniform before everything was said and done. The Honey Badger certainly has a long way to go before donning purple and gold again, but he took a huge step this week, enrolling in classes for the fall semester. Mathieu completed the "treatment phase" at the Right Step rehab...
(Baton Rouge, LA) - Alfred Blue's explosive runs were too tough for Washington to handle and the rest of LSU's running backs made it a really long night for the overmatched Huskies. Blue rushed for 101 yards, including a 21-yard score, and No. 3 LSU racked up 242 yards on the ground in a 41-3 victory over Washington on Saturday night.

In the college football universe, team-enforced suspensions of star players have become as common as the twinkling lights suspended in the night sky. Not as common are the decisions made like that by Mathieu, who surprised many by deciding to stay at LSU after the Tigers dismissed him for repeated failed...
