No. 3 LSU 38, Towson 22
Zach Mettenberger's (right) perfectly placed 53-yard scoring strike to Odell Beckham Jr. exemplified the type of play Les Miles wanted to see from LSU's offense before the Tigers hit one of the toughest stretches on their schedule. If only that play had been the norm instead of the exception in a mistake-filled outing, Miles might not have been describing a "somber locker room" following LSU's win. Mettenberger hit Beckham five times for 128 yards and two touchdowns.
