Josh Dworaczyk, LSU offensive line pound Washington
Third-ranked LSU suffered a blow during practice this week when standout left tackle Chris Faulk suffered a knee injury that will require surgery and rehab and likely keep the 6-foot-6, 323-pound junior sidelined for the rest of the season.
In his place Saturday stepped sixth-year senior Josh Dworaczyk, who himself suffered a season-ending knee injury during fall camp last year.
Dworaczyk made the most of what could soon become a full-time job, helping LSU pound out 242 yards on 52 carries in a 41-3 rout of Washington on Saturday night at Tiger Stadium.
“We’re fortunate to have quality two deep where if you lose a guy, the next guy steps into the breach and plays to the responsibility of the position,” LSU coach Les Miles said.
En route to their record 39th straight nonconference, regular-season victory, the Tigers dominated their smaller Pac-12 opponent up front, driving the Huskies off the line of scrimmage on rushing plays and keeping quarterback Zach Mettenberger free from pressure.
On a night when LSU allowed no sacks, Mettenberger completed 12 of 18 passes (overcoming several drops by his receivers) for 195 yards with a 32-yard scoring strike.

Mett looks like a beast out there. 5 dropped passes that should have easily been caught.
