  • LSU football falls far in Week 4 rankings

If this game was a measuring stick, then Mississippi State proved No. 12 LSU wasn't ready to size up.

That wasn't the case Saturday night. The 30 point win marked the largest margin victory in school history over LSU.

It wasn't just that the Bulldogs were able to win, it's how they won. "We're going to bring energy, be very focused, and everyone that travels has one goal, to win the football game". "They are going to be loud and they are going to ring those cowbells. We knew if we played how we were supposed to play, we'd be fine". Mississippi State (3-0, 1-0) beat LSU for just the second time in 18 tries dating to 2000.

The Bulldogs sit at 2-0 after two blowout wins to start the season. They had nine penalties for 112 yards against MSU. "And there's no one but us to blame". The junior passed for 180 yards with two touchdowns and ran for 88 with two more scores. Keith Mixon caught six passes for 97 yards and a touchdown.

After being tied up at seven early, Mississippi State went on a 30-0 run.

Gayle's boundaries included two sixes in as many balls off left-arm paceman David Willey, a pull followed by a straight drive. Brathwaite, however, bowled Hales for 43 made off just 17 balls, including eight fours and a six.


Quarterback Danny Etling was 13-of-29 for 137 yards, as a few of his passes were dropped. Penny wound up with 206 all-purpose yards and one touchdown, the bulk coming on 175 ground-churning rushing yards.

"I mean, I'm embarrassed", LSU defensive lineman Greg Gilmore said. This is a blue-collar, hard-nosed group that loves their football team. "But we've got to play smart".

LSU gets its first big test of the season on Saturday as the 11th-ranked and undefeated Tigers travel to Starkville to face unbeaten Mississippi State in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. Given the conservative nature of both head coaches, there was little issue with running the ball often and playing stout defense between two good teams but it certainly made for a rather unexciting contest when all was said and done. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen - now in his ninth season - is used to the gauntlet the SEC provides on a yearly basis.

That's why Christmann's great game was such a pleasant surprise. The game will also be broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network with Chris Blair, Doug Moreau and Gordy Rush calling the action.

Mississippi State has wins over Charleston Southern (49-0) and Louisiana Tech (57-21).
