LSU vs. Towson halftime score: Bayou Bengals lead 17-9

The LSU Tigers are in a tougher than expected matchup, as they only lead the Towson Tigers 17-9 at the half. LSU has struggled in the first half, as its offense has turned the ball over twice and is 0-for-6 on third down attempts. Towson actually led, 9-7, late in the second quarter, but LSU scored 10 points in the final 5 minutes of the half.

LSU was aided by a poor punt attempt by Towson which gave them the ball deep in Towson territory, and LSU drove to the Towson 5-yard line and settled for a field goal.

LSU could have a larger lead if not for a missed field goal, as well as the rain that has caused some issues for them moving the ball down the field. Their offense has struggled all night, and the only reason their rushing yards look reasonable is because of a Russell Shepard 78-yard touchdown run early in the first quarter. Take that run away and LSU has only 38 rushing yards, and quarterback Zach Mettenberger is only 8-of-16 for 91 yards.
