LSU showed that when the going gets tough their defense gets going on Thursday night as they ground out a 19-6 win over a very good Mississippi State.
The game was close for 3 quarters as the teams exchanged field goals however going into the 4th quarter LSU , whos offense had been quiet finally sprung into life when Jarrett Lee got a little too much time in the in the pocket, and found Rueben Randle, who despite the attentions of two defenders managed to pull the ball in for a 19-yard touchdown.
This put the Tigers 16-6 up and with their defense in shut down mode there was no way back for the Bulldogs. LSU still had time to add another firld goal to round off the scoring.
The Bulldogs have now lost 2 conference games and its impossible to see them figuring the the BCS this year, on the other hand LSU look like real contenders and we can hardly wait for the the 5th November when there should be some fireworks when they travel to Alabama for what could decide the SEC West.
