    LSU wins in Double OT

    LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson went 15 of 20 for 250 yards and 3 touchdowns to lead the Tigers to a double overtime victory. Tennessee controlled the game early as their d-lineman were causing tons of pressure on the senior quarterback sacking him 3 times in the first half. The kid kept his cool though and didnt turn the ball over once.

    Two special teams turnovers in the first half, including fumbling the opening kickoff, really put LSU's defense in a hole to start the game. They were able to minimize the damage though and the Volunteers led 17-7 at the half.

    The tables were turned in the second half as the pressure came from the LSU defensive line, including one sack that had the trainers assisting star quarterback Burton off the field. That combined with the suffocating Bayou Bengal run defense holding Bryce Brown to under 100 yards and the game was forced into overtime at 20 all.

    After both teams scored rather easy touchdowns to send it to a second overtime the LSU defense again flexed their muscle holding Tennessee to a field goal. On the next possession LSU drove down to inside the 5 when Jefferson made one final play. Dropping back to pass on second down the rush broke through, but the quarterback was poised and dumped the ball to wide open Mike Ford just before being thrown to the turf. Ford calmly walked into the end zone giving LSU sweet justice for their home loss to the Volunteers last season.
