The Tigers handled their own business in front of their own fans, by the count of 27-0, in a venue that was supposed to be a neutral site, but was as partisan as any building could be.
Quarterback Tanner Mangum was ineffective, particularly after everyone realized that the O could not go on the ground, against an LSU defensive front that was … unrelenting.
On the other side, BYU’s defense attempted to give the visitors a chance, knowing full well that, in most cases, when teams beat LSU, they keep the scoring down and find a way to win at the end.
BYU’s defense struggled to slow LSU’s ground game, led as it was by Derrius Guice, who repeatedly pounded that D-front.
Immediately thereafter, a 52-yard completion put the ball on the doorstep of BYU’s goal line, with Guice scoring from there, handing LSU a 14-zip lead early in the second quarter.
