LSU Opens With 37-27 Win Over No. 20 TCU


LINK

quote:

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The 12th-ranked LSU football team (1-0) rolled for 448 yards of total offense and overcame a few of its own mistakes to beat No. 20 TCU, 37-27, and remain perfect in three trips to Arlington.

LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger finished 16-of-32 passing for 251 yards with a game-icing touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry with 6:09 remaining in the season-opening Cowboys Classic. Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. both had more than 100 yards receiving, a feat LSU hadn't seen since 2001.

If it weren't for busted coverage on the kickoff for a touchdown and Blue fumble on our own 6-7 yard line, this game would have been very one sided. Additionally, a couple of those field goals could very easily have been touchdowns had the receivers held on a couple of times. I realize this is all part of the game, but these are correctable problems. If we spend the next three games correcting these things and opening up the offense a bit more, I think we have tremendous potential this year!

Congratulations on an incredibly strong performance and a convincing win. Mett was on fire, your WR and Defense are stout. Good luck in the SEC this year.

Miles has got to get somebody in here that can teach the talented WR's how to consistently catch a football. The drops are going to bite us in the arse in a big game.
