Per Quarterback Jayden Daniels threw for a career high five touchdown passes in the first half, propelling No. 14 LSU over Grambling 72-10 in the first ever meeting between the two programs on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.

Daniels, who finished 18-of-24 for 269 yards, became the fourth Tiger to throw for at least five touchdowns in a single game, joining Joe Burrow, Max Johnson and Zach Mettenberger. His five touchdowns powered the Tigers to 423 yards of total offense and 42 points in the first half, an amount too large for Grambling to overcome.

Saturday’s win marked the first time LSU has scored 70 points or more in a game since the seven overtime game at Texas A&M in 2018 in which the Tigers also scored 72 points. Tonight was also the most points in regulation since the Tigers defeated Arkansas State 70-14 on Oct. 12, 1991.

“We played the game the right way,” said head coach Brian Kelly. “We certainly started fast, built great momentum, and asserted our will in the third quarter. I’m pleased with the way we played the game.”

JD had a career night. Still have concerns with some of his decision making and missing some easy completions. Both are true.

Rantards won’t give JD any credit bc it was Grambling yet they’d be blasting him all over the site if he didn’t put up numbers like that against Grambling.

Some people say JD had a great game. If he did so great, how many TDs did he score in the second half? Exactly. - Sincerely, approximately 70% of our fan base.
