(WVUE) - LSU followed up their extremely disappointing 30-point loss to Mississippi State last week, with a lackluster win over an average Syracuse squad, 35-26.
Syracuse cut the Tigers lead to two points in the fourth quarter, but a D.J. Chark 20-yard touchdown run finally gave LSU the uncomfortable win.
"It was a good win for this team. I know it wasn't pretty, and it wasn't exciting, but I'm glad we won. I think we played and OK game," said LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron.
Quarterback Danny Etling went 10-of-17 for 188 yards, two touchdown passes. Backup Myles Brennan went 4-of-6 passing for 75 yards, and an interception. Darrel Williams rushed for 92 yards and a score.
