LSU handles Oregon, 40-27

The LSU Tigers showed that their defense will be a force to reckon with Saturday with a gritty 40-27 win against No. 3 Oregon Ducks in Dallas, Texas.
Jarrett Lee looked like the 2010 version, which is better than he ever was in handling the Ducks blitz and stunts on the way to 14 unanswered points in the 3rd quarter, which broke the game open.

See ESPN for analysis

LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu got the party started with a fumble return for TD in the first quarter, staking the Tigers to a 9-3 lead before Oregon roared back.
LSU's committee of running backs wore down the Ducks in the third quarter, outrushing them 100 to 10 at one point, before  a late Ducks drive.
 Oregon coach Chip Kelly  tried some things that worked against Auburn, but with 9 months to prepare, the LSU D was ready.
Reuben Randle caught a 10-yard TD pass that put LSU on top 13-9 in the second quarter.
Next up for the Tigers, Northwestern State.
