    LSU Tigers

    The LSU Tigers started off the 2009 season with a 52-20 victory over the Washington Huskies. The first touchdown of the season came on the opening drive as sophomore QB Jordan Jefferson found senior TE Richard Dickson open in the flats for a 17 yard score. Aside from the opening drive, Jefferson struggled with his control early in the first half; as the Huskies benefited from two interceptions on poorly thrown balls.

    These miscues allowed Washington to hang around the entire first half. Trailing just 10-6 with under 2 minutes remaining in the half, stud QB Jake Locker was poised to give the Huskies the lead. However, intense pressure from the Tigers' front four forced a punt.

    Jefferson found WR Toliver streaking into the end zone and the game went to halftime with the Tigers up 17-6. Jefferson would finish the game 17-25 for 291 yards and 4 TDs. Charles Scott, who busted the game open with a 60 yard TD scamper on the first play of the 3rd quarter, led the Tigers in rushing with 184 yards on 18 carries and 2 TDs.

    The Tigers removed their starters on both sides of the ball going into the 4th quarter to prevent any unnecessary injuries. This allowed true freshman phenom QB Shepard to showcase his talents. Rated as the best dual-threat QB by many recruiting services, Shepard called his own number on an option and took it 32 yards to paydirt. He also completed all 3 passes that he attempted.

    LSU will open conference play at home next week against Vanderbilt before hosting Penn State in a much anticipated Top 10 showdown.

    LSU vs. Vanderbilt

    Despite four turnovers, LSU opened SEC play by stomping Vanderbilt 45-13. Charles Scott got the Tigers going with a 33 yard touchdown run early in the 1st quarter. Jordan Jefferson followed up with 3 touchdown passes of his own before the half. Richard Dickson had a great game, catching 2 TD passes.

    The Tigers' defense shut the Commodores for the most part as the Vandy offense only managed two field goals (Vandy's only TD came on a interception return early in the 3rd quarter. The defense applied constant pressure, getting to Smith (Vanderbilt QB) 4 times and forcing 3 interceptions. Vanderbilt had some success on the ground, as Hawkins averaged 4.3 yards per carry on 18 attempts.

    LSU at Georgia

    LSU survived a sloppy game by playing lights out defense. Despite over 500 yards of total offense, LSU manged only 17 points in their 17-0 victory over the Bulldogs. Four turnovers and seven penalties cost the Tigers a number of scoring opportunities, but LSU kept Georgia off the scoreboard.

    Jordan Jefferson threw for 393 yards and 2 TDs. Lafell had 6 reception for 124 yards, but it was Toliver and Molton that were on the end of 2 long touchdown passes (67 and 76 yards).

    The Tiger defense had 3 interceptions, one of these coming on Georgia's only trip to the red zone. Chad Jones had two of the interceptions and added seven tackles.

    LSU vs Florida

    LSU played near mistake free football at last. The result: a much needed win over defending champion Florida.

    The Tigers struck first with a long drive that was capped by a 7 yard strike from Jefferson to Lafell. Florida tied it up on the ensuing possession when Tebow found Parks from 20 yards out. The 1st quarter ended in a 7-7 tie.

    Early in the 2nd quarter, LSU drove deep into Florida territory before being face with a 4th and 1 on about the 3 yard line. The Tigers were poised to go for it, but after a Florida time out they sent in the field goal unit and took a 10-7 lead. Each team would add a touchdown before the half. However, that was far from the most significant thing that happened before the half. Tim Tebow went down with an injury that could keep him out until the bowl game while fighting for a first down near the end of the half. Halftime score - LSU 17 Florida minus Tebow 14.

    After forcing a punt from the Tebowless Gators, Jefferson found Lafell streaking down the sideline for a 67 yard touchdown. There was a breakdown in coverage, leaving Lafell wide open. However, Jefferson's pass was not pefect and Lafell had to tip the ball to himself before he beat the safety to paydirt.

    LSU would add an insurance TD late in the 3rd on a 5 yd option run by Jefferson to cap the scoring at 31-14. Florida never threatened after Tebow went down. Coach Riley is likely staring at his playbook wondering if there is a way to win without Tebow. Hopefully he'll wipe off the drool before drawing up something new.

    Jefferson would finish 13-16 for 239 yards and 2 TDs. Jefferson also combined with the running backs for 124 yards on 38 carries and 2 TDs.

    Florida only ran the ball by someone other than a QB 5 times and had zero rushing yards. Florida QBs were sacked 5 times by 5 different Tigers.

    Can you say...one trick pony?

    My team's in trouble...it was a great game until halftime, then I just fell apart. On that Lafell touchdown, I hit B to switch up to a lineman and ended up selecting my CB who had a step...and then he didn't. That killed me.

    Good game, man.

    LSU vs Oregon State

    LSU played turnover free football and Oregon State failed to convert two red zone opportunities. The result: LSU 38 Oregon State 21.

    The Tigers struck first when Jefferson took an option keeper to the house from 11 yards out. Oregon State bounced right back with the first of two TD runs by Rodgers.

    The rest of the first half was a defensive battle with LSU tacking on a field goal near the end of the half.

    LSU would put the game out of reach in the second half with 3 straight TDs: an 18 yard pass to Dickson, a 21 yard pass to Lafell, and a 1 yd plunge by Scott.

    Lost in the stats are huge opportunities lost by Oregon State. One redzone drive ended on a 4th and 1 when Jacob Cutrera read the pitch right and made arguably the play of the game by preventing the first down. The best argument against that play would be an interception in the end zone Cutrera made to stop the Beavers on another promising drive.

    Rahim Alem came up huge for the Tigers. He had a career day with 14 tackles (8 for losses), 6 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.

    Jefferson finished 12-19 for 184 yards and 2 TDs. Scott ran for 99 yards on just 15 carries with 2 TDs.

    LSU vs Auburn

    LSU picked up their 5th strait victory with a 38-17 win over the War Eagles.

    Auburn looked tough early as they forced LSU to a 3 and out and then tacked on a field goal on their first possession. However, Trindon Holliday returned the short kickoff 79 yards to give LSU a 7-3 lead.

    Auburn offense struggled for their next 3 possessions and LSU added 2 touchdowns during that time. The first was a strike from Jefferson to Lafell on a corner route from 20 yards out. It was 21-3 when Keiland Williams took a pitch 12 yards for a score. The game was never in doubt from that point on.

    Jefferson finished 16-22 for 224 yards and 3 TDs. Scott ran for 118 yards on 19 carries. Lafell had 7 receptions for 93 yards and 2 TDs.

    Next up: vs. Tulane

    LSU vs Tulane

    LSU played poorly but still notched a 42-14 victory over the greenie-weenies.

    The in-state pest, Tulane, forced 5 turnovers but were unable to move the ball on the stiff Tigers defense. The Green Wave converted only 4 times on 3rd down.

    LSU had a balanced attack, rushing for 239 yards and passing for 232. Jefferson finished 18 for 30 with 4 TD passes. Charles Scott busted the Tulane defense for 166 yards on 21 carries and 1 score.

    Rahim Alem was a beast again collecting 13 tackles (5 TFL) and 2 sacks. However, it is Charles Alexander who was the defensive player of the game. He racked up 4 sacks and 6 TFL.

    Next up: at Bama'

    LSU at Alabama

    LSU survived a number of special teams miscues to beat Alabama 27-10.

    The Tigers missed two field goals and gave up a punt return touchdown, but the superb play of QB Jordan Jefferson more than made up for it.

    Despite heavy pressure, heavy rain, and a hostile crowd, Jefferson finished 18 of 27 for 311 yards, 2 TDs, and no interceptions. Three Tigers had exactly 76 yards receiving: Lafell on 5 receptions with a TD, Dickson on 4 catches, and Molton on 3 catches with a TD.

    Charles Scott carried 28 times for 99 yards and one score. Williams added 55 yards on 9 attempts.

    The Tigers are now 9-1(6-0 SEC) and are tied atop the SEC West with Ole Miss. Tennessee has already clinched a spot in the SEC Championship Game from the East Division.

    Next up: BYE, then at Ole Miss

    LSU 49 Tennessee 14

    LSU is the SEC Champion after a dominating win over Tennessee.

    The Vols struck first when Berry returned the opening kickoff 98 yards for a TD. Things were looking down for the Tigers as they were forced to punt on their first possession. However, the LSU defense was able to force a Vols punt and Charles Scott followed it up with a 60 yard TD run. The teams would trade scores on the next two possessions as Rodgers his Stephens from 3 yards out and Scott found the end zone again on a 4 yard run.

    The 2nd quarter began with the score tied 14-14, but the Tigers would own the quarter. Scott added his 3rd TD on a 1 yard plunge to make it 21-14. Williams then made it 28-14 from 4 yards out on the 4th rushing TD on the day for the Tigers. Jefferson capped the scoring for the half as he found Dickson on a 21 yard TD pass.

    Just a few plays into the 3rd quarter, Williams broke free from 66 yards out to make it 42-14. On the following drive Hawkins returned an interception from 78 yards out to cap the scoring. The Tigers played it safe and kept the clock moving for the last quarter plus.

    LSU outgained the Vols 469-176; converted on 50% of 3rd downs to only 25% for the Vols; and had a +4 turnover differential.

    Jefferson finished 8-10 for 159 yards and 1TD. Scott had 133 yards on 23 carries and 3 TDs while Williams ran 17 time for 158 yards and 2 TDs.

    Hawkins had 2 Int including the one he took to the house.

    LSU 24 USF 21

    LSU struggled, but was able to pull out a Sugar Bowl victory over USF.

    LSU struck first on a 31 yard FG, but USF struck back quickly with 2 TDs. The first came on a 41 yard pass from Grothe to Ford. This was followed by a sack and forced fumble that was returned 52 yards for a score. USF led 14-3 after the 1st quarter.

    LSU fought back in the 2nd as Jefferson found Dickson and Toliver for TDs. The LSU defense shut down USF in the 2nd and 3rd quarters, and Jefferson found Toliver again in the 3rd for a 24-14 lead.

    Early in the 4th Grothe found ford again from 20 yards out, but LSU was able to run the clock out for the victory.

    The LSU running game struggled, but Jefferson had a productive day minus a few turnovers. LSU's defense collected 7 sacks, including 4 by Pep Livingston.
