LSU defense helps Tigers to early lead over Syracuse
BATON ROUGE - Tiger freshman cornerback Greedy Williams jumped the first pass of the game from Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey and raced 28 yards to the one yard line setting the tone for LSU early in their game against the Orangemen on Saturday night in Death Valley.
LSU then plunged in from one yard out for the early lead as running back Derrius Guice leaped into the endzone with ease to push the Tigers ahead 7-0.
After that however it's been an ugly game as LSU only accounted for 10 yards of offense on 10 plays, rushing for minus one yard in the first quarter of play.
The Tiger defense allowed a 17 play drive that chewed up 6:33 minutes of clock, however they were able to keep Syracuse out of the endzone as the Orangemen kicked a 42 yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-3 for LSU.
