Alright. I’ll admit that I was over-hyped for this game. Honestly, I felt that LSU had a lot more talent and speed but that they can struggle on offense. I wasn’t too far off. They had a couple offensive series that made them look dangerous but North Texas was hitting them in the mouth and bottling up the Tiger offense.
ALso, Hilbert Jackson put the hit of the night on LSU QB Mettenberger. LSU’s biggest threat was on defense and in special teams, where they really got two punt return TDs (one was called back). All in all, the defense was solid, while the offense was struggling.
All this is not surprising. The lone bright spot on offense was Brelan Chancellor showing some Sun Belt Speed on a 80-yard TD catch-and-run. LSU followed that up with more terrible passing but solid offensive line play (that SEC strength) that got them to the five yard line. Then Zac Whitfield grabbed another poorly thrown pass for his first interception (former running back!).
We are down 24-7.
GO MEAN GREEN.
