The LSU Tiger football team survived some sloppy first half play by both the offense and defense to ride out a 48-16 win over Furman on Homecoming.

LSU's defense allowed just 34 yards and one first down in the second half and the LSU offense got on track en route to the third best offensive output in school history.

The Tiger offense scored 28 second half points behind a strong rushing attack from both Jeremy Hill and Terrrence Magee who each rushed for over a hundred yards as the Tigers rushed for 328 yards and threw for 340 yards in the game.

LSU receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., Magee and Hill each had two touchdowns in the game for the Tigers.

Les Miles and his team will enjoy their first bye week of the season before preparing to play Alabama in Tuscaloosa on November 9.
