The final score the of LSU game was 59-26 but most State fans walked away feeling decent about the team. The Dawgs held with them for three quarters before it slipped away really fast in the fourth quarter. It was as good as you could possibly feel after a 33 point loss, but it was still obviously disappointing as a lot of folks felt this was our best chance to beat LSU in some time.
Chris Jones had a coming out party in this game. He was everywhere. His mauling of the LSU right tackle in the 2nd quarter was one of the highlights of the year for me. LaDarius Perkins had one of his better games with some big runs. He totaled 81 yards on 10 carries.
State just missed too many opportunities on offense and couldn’t get off the field on defense in some key spots with LSU behind the chains. Beckham and Landry killed us all night and it eventually broke our back in the 4th quarter.
