After forcing a 3 and an out on defense, the Tigers settled for a short field goal when they jumped early on 4th and Goal from the 1, for a 3-0 lead.
Another 3 & and out on defense, set the Tigers up on their own 30-yard line, and that’s when the Daniels to Nabers Show got going. It started with a 32-yard pass to begin the drive and ended with a 26-yard touchdown pass to end the drive.
Facing a 4th & 7 on the Miss State 33-yard line, Daniels and Nabers connected for another touchdown and a 17-0 Tigers lead.
Daniels also rushed 15 for 64 yards and two more touchdowns.
Defensively Harold Perkins’s Jr made an impact at times moving to the outside to become n edge rusher. Perkins had a sack and a pair of tackles for loss.
LSU improves to 2-1 and will host Arkansas next Saturday night at 6P.
