LSU Muddles Through Victory Over Towson
LSU was victorious in the result last night, but not in any other sense. A 38-22 victory has never looked so ugly, as the Tigers' performance mimicked the sloppy weather conditions in Baton Rouge.
LSU turned the ball over over three times on fumbles, while coughing it up five times overall. Their passing game was doomed through the better part of three quarters. Zach Mettenberger made poor passes, and his good passes were dropped by the LSU wide receivers consistently. The offensive lined allowed Towson's defense to look more like the Crismson Tide, rather than a FCS opponent.
"I thought that we played down to our opponent," Head Coach Les Miles said after the game. "I thought that if we don't turn the ball over or throw the ball on the ground and we protect our quarterback that this thing looks like it is supposed to be. It is uncharacteristic at the end of the game that a defense like ours would be driven on. I must not have prepared them well."
In the end, Zach Mettenberger found his stroke, connecting with Odell Beckham for two touchdowns, including a 53 yard pass that put the dagger in Towson's valiant effort. Mettenberger ended the game 15 of 26, throwing for 238 yards.
The pollsters have bumped LSU down to No. 4 this morning, and if the Tigers don't shape up, they will continue to slide. Next week, when they take on No. 10 Florida, we will find out if this is the case of a complacement team playing down to its opponents, or a team that is simply inferior to the Tigers who charged through the 2011 season on their way to a national title.
