Bulldogs beat down No. 12 LSU 37-7

Bulldogs beat down No. 12 LSU 37-7

The Bulldogs' big uglies up front paved the way for Nick Fitzgerald, Aeris Williams and Co.to churn out 285 yards on the ground while rolling up 465 yards of offense.

On a steamy evening at Davis Wade Stadium, self-inflicted wounds and Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald were too much for LSU Football to overcome in the SEC opener. The Times-Picayune's unofficial count had Key logging 28 snaps in the first half alone of LSU's 37-7 loss. The Tigers were also sloppy - two touchdown plays were negated because of penalties. Freshman Jace Christmann made the first three field goals of his career, connecting from 30, 45 and 27 yards. But Mississippi State responded with 30 straight points. Quarterback Danny Etling is 22-for-31 for 398 yards in the two games while running backs Derrius Guice and Darrel Williams have combined for 354 yards and seven touchdown.

This bid was foiled after more than a month's time when last infiltration was repulsed with fatal casualties on militant side. Two AK-47 rifles and war-like stores were recovered from them, the army spokesperson said.

LSU: It's not just that the Tigers lost, but how they lost.

After Clemson forced a three-and-out to open the game, Bryant moved the Tigers 79 yards in 10 plays, taking care of the last eight himself to stake Clemson to a 7-0 lead. Linebacker Donnie Alexander and defensive tackle Neil Farrell Jr. will miss time when LSU faces Syracuse on Saturday.
