Baton Rouge, LA—–After a season opener loss to Florida State, LSU seems to be back on track and moving forward.
LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels went 18 for 24 for 269 yards and threw a career-high five touchdown passes, all in the first half, leading No. 14 LSU in a 72-10 thrashing of Grambling on Saturday night.
The Tigers (1-1) scored touchdowns on its first 10 possessions and just moved the ball up and down the field at will.
LSU drove down the field on its opening drive, capping off an eight play, 77-yard drive with a 26-yard touchdown pass from Daniels to Brian Thomas Jr. at the 12:51 mark.
GSU (0-2) found the end zone on a 13-yard pass from Myles Crawley to JR Waters, making it 7-7 with 9:15 to go in the first quarter.
“We played the game the right way,” LSU coach Brian Kelly said. “We started fast, built great momentum and asserted our will in the third quarter and finished it off the right way. Winning is hard regardless of the competition. They are a difficult team to defend.
“To have 10 straight possessions and score in this game when somebody doesn’t want you to score is really hard. You have to execute at a very high level. That doesn’t happen very often and I’ve been doing this for over 30 years. You have to have focus, attention to detail and playmakers.”
