(WVUE) -

LSU kept their win streak alive, and still have a shot to get double-digit wins, after beating Tennessee 30-10, Saturday. LSU (8-3) owns a three-game winning streak, and victorious in six of their last seven games.

Marrero native Darrel Williams scored two touchdowns, and rushed for 68 yards. Derius Guice racked up 97 yards with a touchdown. Quarterback Danny Etling threw for only 81 yards, but did score on a QB keeper. 

LSU was up only seven points at half, but overwhelmed the Vols in the second half.

"We were expecting a battle. Nice crowd, great place to play. I was proud of our team. I told the guys at half, we just need to win the game, and we did that," said LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron.

LSU returns home to meet up with Texas A&M (7-4) next Saturday.

    SEC Media Days means a lot of football talk, but nothing in terms of actual football on the field. The Tigers have seen where they stand on paper, but they're anxious to prove everyone wrong once the season starts.
