LSU returns to 'big boy' football

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La -

LSU now has evidence it can win without Zach Mettenberger throwing for a single touchdown or even for 200 yards.

The Tigers climbed to No. 6 in the Top 25 Poll on Sunday, a day after a 17-6 triumph over Florida. The victory infused LSU with confidence it can contend for Southeastern Conference and national titles, even as its normally potent passing game had its least productive outing this season.

Florida, which fell to 22nd in the rankings came away frustrated with its pass-protection problems and its inability to prevent LSU from gaining 175 yards on the ground. But with only one conference loss, the Gators, remain determined to stay in contention in the SEC Eastern Division and be in the conference title game in Atlanta.
