In case you missed it, LSU announced Monday morning that offensive lineman Josh Boutte has been suspended for the Jacksonville State game after his late hit on Saturday. Per

BATON ROUGE – LSU coach Les Miles has suspended offensive lineman Josh Boutte for one game for his late-game personal foul on Wisconsin defensive back D’Cota Dixon.

Miles said Boutte will sit out LSU’s home-opener against Jacksonville State on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.

“Josh made a mistake and will serve a one game suspension because of it,” Miles said. “Even though this was done by mistake, a play like this does not belong in the game of football and therefore action must be taken.

“This play does not define Josh as a person and is not indicative of the type of player he is. We sincerely apologize for his mistake.”

Miles said that Boutte called Dixon on Monday morning to personally apologize for the personal foul.
