LSU Rolls over Tennessee 30-10

LSU Rolls over Tennessee 30-10

A victory over Tennessee would have given LSU an 18th-straight eight-win season.

The lone non-freshman on Tennessee's starting offensive line — Jashon Robertson — got hurt in the second half.

The next was the biggest, a pass he pulled in - even though the defender was all over him, getting called for defensive pass interference - and turned into a 46-yard touchdown before the half concluded to pull the Vols within seven. Tennessee tumbled to 4-7 overall and 0-7 in SEC play.

The Tigers defense set the tone in the second half after the Volunteers' Marquez Gallaway, who fumbled away two punts in the first half, misplayed the second-half kickoff in the howling wind and heavy rain and started the drive at their 3. LSU's offense capitalized this time, as Darrel Williams rushed in from 10 yards out to put the Tigers up 10-3 with 11:31 left in the frame.

The Vols, using a more deliberate style of offense by huddling and milking the clock, used 7:35 off the clock and drove 53 yards in 14 plays to tie the game, but not without a little drama involved. LSU did rebound in Week 11, though, with a 33-10 victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks. Williams 12-yard run to the UT 14.

LSU: Danny Etling 13 run at 2:08 (Culp kick) DRIVE: 3-61-0:28.

Connor Culp 30 field goal at 6:38.

A torrential rain storm blew through Knoxville during halftime and early in the third quarter, and Tennessee almost had a disaster on the opening kickoff of the second half before Callaway fell on the ball at the UT 3 to keep LSU from recovering.

Guarantano connected on 13-of-23 passes for 239 yards and a touchdown, while John Kelly mustered only 47 yards on 25 carries. The Vols punted, and the Tigers began to march behind Williams and Derrius Guice.

Etling took advantage of limited opportunities to throw due to the weather, as the senior completed 11-of-15 passes for 81 yards in a insane swirling wind. Two plays later, LSU punched it into the end zone again, as Williams scored from 6 yards out to make it 30-10 with 2:06 left on the third quarter clock. DRIVE: 9-50-4:36. KEY PLAYS: Etling 4-yard run on third-and-3 to the UT 39 extends the drive. The first was a 26-yard pass he hauled in, tip-toeing the sideline to move the sticks on third down. Jarrett Guarantano's quarterback sneak came up short and LSU converted that into a touchdown to account for the final score of the game.

LSU closes the regular season on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.
