LSU blasts Northwestern State, 49-3

Called a trap game by commentators, LSU vs. Northwestern State may have trapped pundits into thinking the Tigers weren't for real after they thrashed Oregon last week.
A 49-3 victory over Northwestern State settled that assumption.

"I like how our team approached this game," Miles said. "It's nice. It means that your starters were not taxed. It means you should be fresh, and as we go into a short week, that's key."

The highly touted juco transfer, quarterback Zach Mettenberger, made his debut in the second half of the game with the Tigers up 28-3.

Jarrett Lee continued his sharp play, finishing 9 of 10 passes for 133 yards and a TD. Mettenberger went 8 of 11 for 92 yards. He also threw a 19-yard touchdown pass.

"He did good," Miles said of Mettenberger. "He came in, got comfortable, made some nice throws. I felt like he handled the offense well."

Next up will provide the Tigers with their first real measuring stick in the SEC: Mississippi State.
