How it happened: Washington got a very early field goal after Odell Beckham fumbled the opening kickoff. But the Tigers dominated the rest of the way, winning 41-3.
Turning Point: The Huskies were leading 3-0 and LSU went three-and-out on its first offensive drive. On came punter Brad Wing and the Australian's first punt of the season went 62 yards to the Washington four-yard line. After a Washington three-and-out, LSU ended up with great field position and running back Alfred Blue would score the first touchdown of the game.
Most Valuable Tigers: Blue and cornerback Jalen Mills. For the second straight game, Blue rushed for over 100 yards. The former Hahnville star had 101 yards on 14 carries. For the season, Blue is averaging 7.4 yards a rush. The entire defense played great, but Mills had a game he'll never forget. The freshman from Texas recorded his first interception, broke up another pass and recorded seven tackles.
Stat of the Night: LSU outrushed Washington 242-26.
A game to forget: Huskies quarterback Keith Price got more than just a taste of what SEC football is all about. Price didn't get much help early on as Washington receivers dropped three passes in the first quarter. When Washington's wide outs were not dropping passes, Price was under heavy pressure. LSU sacked him four times and Price was 17-of-36 for 157 yards and one interception.
LSU's receivers will also like to forget about this one. They dropped five passes and that will be the big theme this week on radio talk shows.
Out of Bounds: Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu had good seats for this game. He was watching from the 17-yard line, on the 13th row in the east stands, closer to the south end zone, but the Honey Badger didn't stick around for the 2nd half or at least he wasn't sitting in those seats for the 2nd half.
What's next: The three-game homestand to open the season comes to an end on Saturday as the Fighting Tigers host Idaho. The Vandals are 0-and-2 as they lost their season opener to Eastern Washington and then fell to Bowling Green 21-13. Idaho quarterback Dominique Blackman was 30 of 37 for 352 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in the loss to the Falcons.
