Baton Rouge, La. - LSU's defense was effective at shutting down North Texas for most of the game but an 80-yard touchdown reception and a 13-play, 66-yard drive allowed the Mean Green to put 14 points on the board.

Head coach Les Miles sees the first game as a learning opportunity on defense: "We have to clean up some things.  We were offsides a couple of times.  We misplayed two passes, but with some instruction and some correction it seems to me that we will be able to make those corrections."

"If you make a mistake, it can go for six points easily," said Eric Reid, who was the victim of the 80-yard touchdown to UNT's Brelan Chancellor. "That particular play, I forgot that I didn't have a linebacker, he was going on a blitz, so I jumped a route and the middle of the field was wide open so those are mistakes that can't be made twice."

The defensive line also sees room for improvement, according to defensive end Barkevious Mingo: "They made a lot of plays, they went for some long yards.  We'll come out this week with a different mindset, not to give up as many yards and to keep them out of the end zone."
