Tigers leapfrog expectations

Posted: Updated:
Arlington, TX -

Les Miles and the LSU Tigers answered the critics Saturday night with a tough win over TCU in the Cowboys Classic.  With many questioning the team's new offense under Cam Cameron, Zach Mettenberger put on a show.  The senior was 16 for 32 with 251 yards and a touchdown, with 12 of those completions going to wide outs Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham.  The receiving duo each hauled in over 100 yards and Landry caught the final score that would put the game away.  It was close throughout with LSU failing to reach the end zone on their first two red zone trips.  The 
Tigers finally reached pay dirt with a one yard rush by fullback J. C. Copeland.  The momentum them switched over to the Frogs as James Hairston brought the ensuing kickoff 100 yards back for a score, making it 13 to 9.  TCU's Casey Pachall, who got the start after leaving the team last season, threw an interception to start the second half.  A few plays later Terrence Magee was off to the races with a 52 yard touchdown run to put the Tigers up 23-10.  In the fourth LSU's Alfred Blue would lose the ball in Tiger territory, leading to 10 straight points for the Horned Frogs and making it just a three point game.  Unfortunately for TCU, it was Beckham and Landry's night.  After a Frog field goal made it 30-27 Beckham returned the ensuing kickoff 75 yards, and Landry finished things off with a 20 yard touchdown reception.  LSU wins the Cowboys Classic 37-27.
