No. 3 LSU Tigers absolutely dominated the Idaho Vandals on Saturday night, 63-14, exerting their control in the second half and never looking back.
Idaho would pull to within 21-14 near the end of the first half after a Dominique Blackman touchdown pass to Jahrie Level, but LSU would score in the final seconds of the second quarter to ensure an upset was not in danger of occuring in Baton Rouge.
The Tigers would score 35 points in the second half, starting with a Lavar Edwards interception return for a touchdown just four minutes into the third quarter and an overpowering rushing attack that put up 250 yards on the ground for the game.
LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger was 17-of-22 for 222 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, with Kenny Hilliard leading the Tigers with 116 yards rushing on 11 carries.
The Vandals would manage just 213 yards of offense for the game and turned the ball over four times against the LSU defense.
LSU will take on Auburn next on Sept. 22 at 6 p.m. CT, with coverage on ESPN.
