LSU Falls to Miss. State in SEC Opener

Penalties continued to derail the Tigers on both ends of the field as LSU opened SEC play with a loss to the Mississippi State Bulldogs 37-7. In all, LSU was penalized nine times for 112 yards. Keith Mixon caught six passes for 97 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald is 13-of-20 for 149 yards and a touchdown - while the team's ground game has produced 206 rushing yards and two more scores. Bryant closed the half hitting 17-of-27 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown with 12 carries for 35 yards and another score. But Mississippi State responded with 30 straight points. Derrius Guice had 76 yards rushing.

Following a first quarter feeling-out period, the Bulldogs methodically whipped the Bayou Bengals up and down the field and made them like it. MSU did it by following the same recipe that has made LSU so successful over the years - being more physical in the trenches. LSU has nonconference games over the next two weeks against Syracuse and Troy to get things right before jumping back into SEC play. Mississippi State has a very good running game with Fitzgerald and Williams, and the defense is playing very well.

Mississippi State has also doubled up on yardage against the Tigers - 361-170.

The 6-foot-6 Key came into the game at about 265 pounds, according to LSU coach Ed Orgeron, and rotated with freshman K'Lavon Chaisson.
