For most of the past eight months, college football fans have looked forward to LSU's opening-night tilt with Oregon on Sept. 3 as a true heavyweight showdown that would shape the national championship race from the earliest hours of the season. As of Friday morning, it's beginning to look more like a test of which team can actually keep a complete lineup on the field:

LSU senior quarterback Jordan Jefferson, 21, and sophomore linebacker Joshua Johns, 21, have been booked and released from Parish Prison after Baton Rouge police arrested them on second-degree battery counts.

Both players posted a $5,000 bond.
The arrest warrants accuse each player of kicking a man while he was lying on the ground during a fight outside a Baton Rouge bar on Aug. 19, the arrest warrants say.

The man who was kicked suffered "extreme physical pain and unconsciousness," the warrant says.

Jordan Jefferson has been charged with felony battery. Let LSUís quarterback reckoning begin.Jefferson and Johns were both in police custody as of 10:15 a.m. CT. Both were identified by name in a police report as two of at least 10 people who assaulted Andrew Lowery, 21, who according to witnesses had intervened in an ongoing brawl to help an unidentified man who had been pulled from his pickup truck; Jefferson was personally implicated by a witness who told police "she knows for certain that she observed Jordan Jefferson kick[ing] Lowery in the face." Hence the 49 pairs of shoes police confiscated from Jefferson's apartment earlier this week. Second-degree battery is a felony and carries a maximum sentence of five years upon conviction.
