Jordan Jefferson looks to bounce back vs Mississippi State

Jordan Jefferson has been waiting all week for a shot at redemption.

That may seem odd for a quarterback on a 2-0, 15th-ranked team coming off a 24-point road win.

But at Vanderbilt last weekend, LSU rolled to a 27-3 triumph even as Jefferson labored through one of the worst performances of his career, going 8 of 20 for 96 yards with one interception and no touchdowns.

Dominant defense and a powerful running game were enough to compensate for LSU's anemic aerial attack against the Commodores.

LSU coach Les Miles isn't sure whether that formula will be as effective in the Tigers' home opener Saturday night against Mississippi State.

The Bulldogs nearly beat LSU a year ago and looked competitive in a 17-14 loss to Auburn last week.
