LSU defense drowns Ducks

LSU capitalized on three Oregon turnovers, converting all three into touchdowns on their way to a 40-27 win over the Ducks in the Cowboy Classic.

The game appeared that it was going to be a classic defensive struggle with the Tigers holding a slim 9-6 halftime lead. Oregon retook the lead briefly, but LSU was able to repeatedly force the Oregon offense off the field in the third quarter, taking the lead for good.
