2014 Sam Houston State vs LSU

In their first game in newly expanded Tiger Stadium, LSU rolled to a 56-0 with over FCS opponent Sam Houston State University. The Tigers jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the first five minutes of the game and never looked back.

Travin Dural got LSU going early, catching three passes and turning them all into scores by the early part of the second quarter. He got the scoring started when he hauled in a deep ball from Anthony Jennings on the Tigers’ first offensive play of the game, taking it 94 yards for the score.   Dural finished with 140 yards, all on his three scoring catches.

Freshman Leonard Fournette put his stamp on the game early as well, getting untracked in the first quarter. After carrying defenders on a 41-yard run deep into Bearkats’ territory, Fournette finished off the drive with a short TD run, putting an exclamation point on it by striking a Heisman pose in the end zone. Fournette led the Tigers with 92 yards on the ground. Freshman Darrel Williams (65 yards, TD) and senior Kenny Hilliard (55 yards, TD) helped power the Tigers’ ground game, which totaled 334 yards.

Both LSU QB’s saw extended action. Anthony Jennings started the game and led four straight touchdown drives to start the game. Freshman Brandon Harris got more comfortable as the game progressed, running for a 46-yard score in the second quarter and tossing his first career TD to fellow freshman Malachi Dupre late in the game.

LSU’s defense smothered Sam Houston’s fast-paced offense, recording six sacks and forcing three turnovers. Safeties Dwayne Thomas and Rickey Jefferson both recorded interceptions, and freshman defensive end Sione Teuhema recorded two late sacks.

The Tigers set an attendance record in this game, with 100,338 fans in the stadium.
