For the second consecutive week, the LSU football team built a big lead in the first half and sat on it in the second.
The 31-0 victory against Southeastern Louisiana Saturday was even less pretty than the 33-17 victory with which LSU surprised Miami in the highly-anticipated opener. So much for teams improving the most between their first and second game. If it went anywhere, LSU regressed in staggering past the Lions.
The results were justifiable for the erstwhile “struggling” program. LSU sits 2-0 and No. 12 in the nation going into its most important September game. The Tigers will find out how good they really are with a visit to No. 7 Auburn, where LSU has won twice this century.
