LSU Handles Furman

Furman v LSU

Was there any doubt that LSU would win their homecoming game against the Furman Paladins Saturday? Yes there was. A very sluggish first half and two turnovers probably had the Tiger faithful wondering if purple and gold had taken this game a little too lightly.

Obviously a halftime conversation with Head Coach Les Miles helped the Tigers regain their focus as LSU began to pull away from the over matched Furman Squad. The final score in Saturday night’s contest was LSU 48 and Furman 16.

It was a big night for Tiger receiver Odell Beckham Jr. He caught six passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns, that translated into a 34 yards per catch average.Signal caller Zach Mettenberger was 16 of 24 in the passing department tossing 3 touchdowns but the night was blemished with two interceptions.  The LSU rushing tandem of Jeremy Hill and Terrence Magee combined for well over 200 yards in the ground game. Hill rushed for 143 yards and 2 scores with a long of 55. Magee rushed for 107 yards and 2 scores as well.

The Tigers will take the next week off and no doubt be focused on what will become the game of the year when they travel to Tuscaloosa to take on the number one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide November 9th. Alabama defeated Tennessee by a score of 45-10. The Crimson Tide will also take a week off to prepare for the Tigers
