LSU channels Baker Mayfield by planting flag in Texas' field

Texas defeated Tech 45-14 and kept the Bulldogs scoreless until the fourth quarter, when the Longhorns second string entered the game. "If the Tar Heels can catch their breath after the victory they had last week, Mack's first game, if they caught their breath, press reset, I'm going with the Tar Heels". Burrow spent three years at Ohio State before transferring to LSU.

West Virginia won 20-13 against James Madison with barely any production from the run game (34 yards). Ehlinger dropped back, found Ingram wide open in the end-zone - and he dropped it. Lynn Amedee knocked through a pair of field goals for the Tigers and also forced a fumble to set up a score.

"Coach Orlando tells the defense all the time, 'There's no such thing as a game where you can't just turn it on and turn off whenever you want to", Jones said.

A hot locker room atmosphere wasn't enough to stop LSU from cruising to a huge win over Texas. However, LSU looked like it may finally have a reliable offense for big games and the Texas defense is still far from flawless. LSU never looked back after converting on a 28-second drive that gave them a 13-point halftime lead.

LSU now knows what it has in freshman kicker Cade York.

The stage was set for a classic game at Texas Memorial Stadium, but the visiting fans had a tough time enjoying the game - not because of what was happening on the field, but due to their seats. The last one ensured the Tigers would keep a two-possession cushion with the Longhorns offense heating up. Texas players didn't seem to have the same cramping problems.

Asked if he felt the injuries were in good faith, Herman simply said: "No idea". "Reminds me of that type of player, but he's a better thrower". Iowa State was ranked No. 21 in the preseason poll, then dropped out of the rankings after beating Northern Iowa in the season opener last week. The Longhorns are 41-1 against the Owls since 1966.
