LSU dominates BYU, 27-0

04 September 2017

It was just the fourth time since 1975 that BYU has held the ball for less than 19 minutes.

Back to the game, Derrius Guice rushed for 120 yards and two TD's and the Tigers defense was just too stout for BYU.

The BYU offense managed a measly 97 total yards, jjust six first downs and failed to even cross midfield against #13 LSU in a 27-0 loss to the Tigers at the Superdome in New Orleans.

Both teams finished the first quarter with zeros on the scoreboard, but it was all LSU after that.

Though coach Ed Orgeron would like to see a little more from the offense moving forward, it's clear the Tigers will once again have a powerful defense in 2017.

"You know what, we all make mistakes". After the game, there was some self evaluation from the Tigers. Etling proved right those teammates and coaches who said he has looked more accurate since recovering from offseason back surgery.

For Guice, the 100-yard rushing game was the seventh of his college career and third in a row, dating to his school-record 285 yards against Texas A&M and his 138 yards in the Citrus Bowl win against Louisville. He did not have a touchdown pass, but didn't turn the ball over, either.

"Here's the deal", Orgeron said. "But it goes to show you the hard work he did all summer, and he learned, he studied". He learned. He studied.

The Cougars also had a fake punt deep in their own territory snuffed out, resulting in Darrel Williams' 1-yard TD.

The other seven carries for Guice came in the third quarter. His second TD was 1-yard run capping a drive that began after Andraez Williams' interception and which featured Etling's long pass to Chark.
