Game Notes
LSU’s High-Powered Offense Meets SEC’s Top Defense On Saturday in Tiger Stadium
LSU’s high-powered offense will face its toughest test of the season on Saturday when the No. 10/11 Tigers host No. 17 Florida at 2:30 p.m. in Tiger Stadium. The game will be televised on CBS with Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson and Tracy Wolfson on the call. LSU upped its record to 5-1 overall and 2-1 SEC in play following its 59-26 win over Mississippi State last week. Florida beat Arkansas, 30-10, to run its record to 4-1 overall and 3-0 in conference action. LSU has won five straight and 27 of its last 28 games in Tiger Stadium. Saturday’s game will mark the 10th straight year that both LSU and Florida – permanent cross-divisional opponents – enter the game ranked in the Top 25. Saturday’s game will also feature an LSU offense that ranks among the league leaders in scoring (3rd at 45.5), passing (3rd at 291.5) and total offense (4th at 488.8) against a Florida defense that leads the league in scoring (12.2), total defense (217.0), pass defense (152.0) and rushing defense (65.0). LSU has topped the 400-yard mark in all six games this year – a first in school history – and they’ve scored at least 30 points in every game thus far – also a first for the Tigers. QB Zach Mettenberger leads the SEC in pass efficiency with a 190.1 rating as he’s completed 107-of-152 passes for 1,738 yards and 15 touchdowns with only two interceptions. He’s on pace to set the school record for passing yards and passing TDs in a season. LSU’s wide receiver tandem of Jarvis Landry (42 rec., 616 yards, 7 TDs) and Odell Beckham Jr. (35 rec., 686 yards, 6 TDs) is the most productive in college football in terms of combined receptions (77) and yards (1,302). RB Jeremy Hill had his 7th career 100-yard rushing game vs. Mississippi State with 157 yards. Hill leads the SEC and ranks No. 2 in the nation with 9 rushing TDs and his 118.8 rushing average is No. 2 in the SEC and 11th in the nation. Defensively, LSU is allowing 24.7 points and 367.0 total yards (159.5 rushing, 207.5 passing) per game. LB Lamin Barrow leads the Tigers with 36 tackles, while DE Jermauria Rasco has 29 tackles, including 3.0 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. DT Anthony Johnson leads LSU with 4.5 tackles for loss to go with 21 total tackles, a sack and an interception. PK Colby Delahoussaye leads the SEC in scoring by kickers with 57 total points as he’s connected on all seven of his field goal attempts and his 36-of-36 PATs.
 
QB Zach Mettenberger has thrown for 300 yards or more in back-to-back games joining Tommy Hodson (1989), Rohan Davey (2001) and Matt Flynn (2007) as the only players in school history to accomplish the feat.
 
Zach Mettenberger was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week on Monday for his play in LSU’s win over Mississippi State. With 1,738 passing yards and 15 TDs, Mettenberger is on pace to set the school record in both categories.
 
Odell Beckham Jr. leads the nation in all-purpose yards with 228.2 per game and he’s averaging 21.1 yards every time he touches the football. He’s accumulated 1,369 all-purpose yards on 65 touches this year (3 rush, 7 punt ret., 19 kickoff ret., 35 rec., 1 ret. of missed FG).
 
Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry form the nation’s top wide receiving tandem as they’ve combined for 77 receptions for 1,302 yards and 13 TDs.
 
LSU has scored 30 or more points in the first six games of a season for the first time in school history and they’ve accounted for 400 or more total yards in all six games – also a first for LSU. For the first time in school history, the Tigers have scored at least 35 points in six straight games.
 
QB Zach Mettenberger has started 19 straight games, the longest streak by an LSU quarterback since Herb Tyler had 37 consecutive starts from 1995-98. Mettenberger is 15-4 as LSU’s starting quarterback.
 
Jarvis Landry has caught 42 passes this year with 31 of them going for first downs. Of those 27 first down receptions, 14 came on third down.
 
LSU has played 14 true freshmen so far this season. The 14 true freshmen rank as the nation’s third-highest total, trailing Texas A&M (17) and UCLA (16). In nine years under Miles, LSU has sent a total of 87 true freshmen to the field.
 
LSU has won 35 of its last 36 games when scoring at least 30 points. Under Les Miles, LSU is 63-5 when hitting the 30-point mark.

Les Miles Becomes Quickest LSU Coach To Reach 90 Wins 
The following is a quick look at Les Miles’ notable accomplishments during his nine years and 112 games (90-22 record) as head coach of the Tigers:
With the win over Mississippi State, Miles became the quickest LSU coach to reach 90 victories doing so in 112 games. It took Charles McClendon 124 games to reach that milestone.

games), 50 wins (63 games), 60 wins (76 games), 70 wins (87 games), and 80 wins (98 games) in school history
With 10 or more wins six times at LSU, Miles joined Bear Bryant (13 at Alabama), Steve Spurrier (9 at Florida), Philip
Fulmer (9 at Tennessee), Mark Richt (8 at Georgia) and Vince Dooley (7 at Georgia) as the only coaches in SEC history to have six or more 10-win seasons at the same school.

Led LSU to 10-1 start three times in a 6-year span from 2005-10 (‘05, ’07, ’10)
Only coach in LSU history to beat Auburn, Florida and Alabama in same season – and he’s done it three times (2005, 
’07, ‘11)
Only coach in LSU history to beat Florida and Tennessee in the regular season during the same year, doing it twice 
(2010, ’11). 
Only first-year coach in SEC history to lead team to league’s title game (2005)
Has 15 wins over coaches who have won national titles
Coached LSU to 10-plus wins in three straight seasons – a first at the school – and to six overall (the most at the 
school).
