LSU Tigers News
9-22-14: It was upset city in Baton Rouge this weekend as LSU's dominant defense was overwhelmed by Mississippi State 34-29. This is the Tigers first loss to the Bulldogs since 1999, and their first loss at home to Mississippi State in 23 years. LSU allowed 570 total yards to the Bulldogs, including 302 on the ground. They were down 17-10 early in the second half, but allowed 17 straight points to turn the game into a runaway. The Tigers made late effort behind backup quarterback Brandon Harris, but their comeback bid fell short.
9-15-14: The Tigers weren’t challenged in a 31-0 rout of a Louisiana-Monroe team this past weekend. With that being said, head coach Les Miles appears to have found a starting quarterback. Sophomore Anthony Jennings didn’t throw a touchdown, but completed 11 of 18 passes for 139 yards with an interception. Freshman Brandon Harris attempted only two passes, completing one for 14 yards. LSU will host Mississippi State this coming weekend.
9-9-14: LSU registered its first shutout since 2010 and racked up 584 yards in its home opener, beating Sam Houston State 56-0. The Tigers rushed for a total of 334 yards in the process. LSU got 188 passing yards and three touchdowns from QB Anthony Jennings, with QB Brandon Harris also tossing a score. The pair combined to complete 11 of 18 passes for 250 yards. Les Miles’ squad will play host to Louisiana-Monroe this coming weekend.
9-4-14: Almost any game head coach Les Miles is apart of is an adventure. LSU trailed by 17 points midway through the third quarter last week in their game against then AP No. 14 Wisconsin. A fake punt, of all things, turned the game around. Miles called for linebacker Kendell Beckwith to take the ball from his up-man position, and the sophomore gained five yards on a 4th-and-4 play. That single play propelled the Tigers and deflated the Badgers as LSU ended up winning 28-24. Quarterback Anthony Jennings threw for 239 yards and two touchdowns despite just completing nine of 21 passes. The Tigers take on Sam Houston State this Saturday.
