Nervous LSU now comparing their performances to Washington Game

LSU’s season-opening victory over Washington last week wasn’t assured until quarterback Jordan Jefferson hit a wide-open Brandon LaFell in the end zone with 1:54 remaining.

On Saturday night in Baton Rouge, the No. 11 Tigers (2-0, 1-0) separated themselves from Vanderbilt (1-1, 0-1) with a 14-yard run by Keiland Williams with 6:01 to turn a seven-point game into a 23-9 victory.
