The weather was terrible last night at Tiger Stadium but not for the LSU Ofense as they put up 48 points and over 500 hundred total yards.RB Leonard Fournette had 150 yards on 25 carries and 1 td, Brandon Harris threw for 286 yards and 3 tds, wr Travin Dural a big night with 5 catches 132 yards and a score, wr Malachi Dupre seems to find the endzone this season with 3 catches 86 yards and 1 td, even wr Tyron Johnson got in on the scoring 1 catch for 61 yards for a touchdown. Darius Geice had a big run for a touchdown as he scampered down the field on a long run, also rb Williams added a touchdown as well. Wr Dupree said Harris is playing great right now, and appears so after a 55 yard bomb to Dupre for LSU’s 1st touchdown.The defense played really well limiting the Hill Toppers to 20 points, where they been averaging roughly 40 points per game,the Hill Toppers qb Doughty finished with 325 yards of passing with 37 completes and 3 tds, Safety Jamal Adams picked off the Hill Toppers qb for an interception. I am sure the weather had a big factor in the game especially with the Hill Toppers did a side pass flea flicker, the Hill Topper wr caught the ball ran 15 yards down the field, with some LSU db’s approaching and he slip down because of the field. LSU played well to speak of the accommodations on the field and they held a good offensive team to 20 points. Qb Brandon Harris and Leonard Fournette was held back from talking to the media last night after the game, interesting for sure, but it’s good to keep your star players in check, or give them less media time.
LSU takes a week off and gets ready for a Showdown with the Alabama Crimson Tide which will be played on Nov.7th, Alabama has a bye week too. This game will lay out all the playoff implications, and whoever wins this game will go on to the Georgia Dome, and then on to the playoffs, perhaps a stage for a National Title Game to decide the best in the country. Coach Miles is 3-2 at the Denny -Bryant Stadium, the last time LSU won in Alabama was in 2011 where they beat the Tide 9-6. This will be a game for the ages as Leonard Fournette has been waiting for this game for awhile, and I am sure alot of LSU Players have circle this game before the season. I believe Alabama was looking ahead to LSU as they had to come from behind to beat Tennessee on a last drive to go ahead 19-14, Alabama hung on as they sack Dobbs and recover a fumble to seal the game. It should be a hard fought game as these two SEC Giants go head to head Nov.7th.
