LSU Tigers efficient in victory over Washington

LSUís methodical 41-3 victory against Washington on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium was historically significant.

The Tigers (2-0) extended the nationís longest home winning streak to 19 games, tying the school record set between 2005-07.

They beat a nonconference opponent in a regular-season game for the 39th consecutive time (improving to 29-0 under coach Les Miles in such games), tying Kansas Stateís FBS record. LSU will be heavily favored to break the record when it plays Idaho Saturday in Tiger Stadium.

But there were other reasons the victory was significant in the here and now.

The Tigers offensive line held up fine with senior Josh Dworaczyk stepping in for Chris Faulk, whoís likely out for the season because of a knee injury suffered in practice during the week. LSU didnít match the 508 yards it amassed in a 41-14 victory against North Texas last week, but it still had 437 against the more talented Huskies (1-1).

The defense limited the Huskies to 183 total yards, including 26 on 24 rushes. After falling to get a sack last week, the Tigers had four and generally made things uncomfortable for Keith Price, Washingtonís talented junior quarterback.

LSU, which was penalized 10 times in the opener, had half as many infractions and flustered the Huskies, who were penalized 10 times for 64 yards.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
