Both these teams will be without key players in this match. Four starters will be out due to being selected to the Junior All-American team that will be playing for the Junior World Trophy in Zimbabwe.

Arizona will be missing, Hooker, Steven Branham; Prop, Mason Pedersen; and Fullback, Tyler Sousley. LSU will be without Flanker, Brennan Falcon.
