No. 6 LSU unsettled by lapse as Georgia looms
BATON ROUGE - By the time Zach Mettenberger and the LSU Tigers had sealed up their latest victory over Auburn in their Southeastern Conference opener, they were too disappointed over their second-half slippage to celebrate their early dominance.
Mettenberger says the sixth-ranked Tigers "just didn't keep their heads in the game," and he hopes his team learned its lesson in time for its first big road test of the season at No. 9 Georgia this coming Saturday.
Still, the Tigers have (4-0, 1-0 SEC) have plenty to be happy about coming of their 35-21 victory Saturday night.
The Tigers have won all four of their games by double digits, averaging 43.2 points per game, while giving up only 19.5. Their offense has been balanced, and their defense solid.
LSU head football coach Les Miles will address the media at his "Lunch with Les" news conference today. WBRZ will stream the conference live online and air it on WBTR, Cox Cable channel 19.
