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.
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.

Additionally, a couple of those field goals could very easily have been touchdowns had the receivers held on a couple of times.
