LSU has role reversal in win against Rebels
By GeauxTigerNation staff
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Remember the old days when LSU used to smother teams with defense while trying to get by with a pedestrian offense?
That's so three weeks ago.
Since its bye week, LSU seems to have re-invented itself, never more than in the Tigers' 41-35 win over Ole Miss Saturday night.
With the defense giving up a season-high 463 yards -- the fourth straight game the Tigers have allowed at least 331 yards after not allowing 300 yards in any of the first seven games -- LSU's offense came to the rescue.
The Tigers put up 427 yards of their own -- 282 passing by quarterback Zach Mettenberger -- and the Tigers drove 64 yards for the winning touchdown on Jeremy Hill's 1-yard, tie-breaking touchdown run with 15 seconds left.
