DCF was on the sidelines for the LSU vs UAB game, and from the start LSU took it to the Blazers. Zach Mettenberger had a school record for 5 touchdowns in a single game, 16-19, with 282 yards, and was the 1st quarterback in school history to break the record. Odell Beckham, Jr was on the receiving end with 3 tds, and Jarvis Landry caught two td’s to complete five for the record. Jeremy Hill and Terrance MaGee had the other scores on the ground. and Beckham,Jr ran an attempted field goal by UAB back for 108 yrd touchdown. There was plenty of productiveness out of the offense, for the second straight week the Tigers offense scored over 35 pts. I am sure Les Miles is happy with the offensive production, and for them to keep on rolling on. The defense was alittle concern in the 1st half, but as LSU DE Jordan Allen said after the game, we came to play Tiger defense and they found a way to stop that scrappy bunch of offensive players for UAB. It look like UAB was gonna make a run for it in the second half as LSU took a 35 to 17 lead into halftime, Darrin Weaves had a 11 yrd run and Jamarcus Nelson caught a 41 yrd pass from Austin Brown. Ty Long for UAB added a field goal as well before the half. LSU looked very good in the second half as they scored 21 unanswered points to go up 56 to 17, including Odell Beckham’s 108 yrd run back from a field goal attempt by UAB kicker. I am sure teams in the future will make sure not to miss anymore field goals with Beckham,Jr fielding the return. The Tigers look very productive and even the locals in Baton Rouge are starting open their eyes to a very special season.
LSU gets ready to take on Kent State this week at home in Tiger Stadium before they go on the road to face the Georgia Bulldogs. Alabama has their hands fulls as they head up to College Station to play Texas A&M and Mr. Johnny Football. Hopefully Alabama better get their offensive line together, their offense only scored 14 pts against the Hokies, the defense and special teams scored the rest of the 21 points.
