Small miscues. They had it in regulation after the force out off Sessoms knee, only to turn it over on the inbound. LSU defense is great, but they also gave away too many that almost cost them. Way to stay in it and battle for the win.

Ugly win is right but it is a win! Gotta do better than 35% FG and less than 20% 3-pt shooting, but you have these games! Shows they can rely on defense to win!

Compared to Penn, LSU is very young. First road game, against a power 5 team, and played their worst game of the season. This is a game we would have lost the past few years. But we gave defense now. Team is only going to get better too.

This year feels different, Days had a bad game and we still found a way to win. Hello bench!
