BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - By the time Zach Mettenberger and the LSU Tigers had sealed up their latest victory over Auburn in their Southeastern Conference opener, they were too disappointed over their second-half slippage to celebrate their early dominance.
Mettenberger says the sixth-ranked Tigers "just didn't keep their heads in the game," and he hopes his team learned its lesson in time for its first big road test of the season at No. 9 Georgia this coming Saturday.
Still, the Tigers have (4-0, 1-0 SEC) have plenty to be happy about coming of their 35-21 victory Saturday night.
The Tigers have won all 4 of their games by double digits, averaging 43.2 points per game, while giving up only 19.5. Their offense has been balanced, and their defense solid.
