LSU could be in for embarrassing loss

If LSU does not make a lot of adjustments on both sides of the ball very quickly, it is in for one of its worst upsets in the history of the school.

The Tigers took a 17-13 lead into halftime, and they could have easily been behind 20-10 or something similar.

The defense still looks a lot like the outfit from 2008 despite the new system of newly hired defensive coordinator John Chavis. Washington piled up 296 yards of offense in the first half and would have had the lead without a fumble inside the LSU 5-yard line and an interception by Tiger middle linebacker Jacob Cutrera that he returned 28 yards for a touchdown and 10-7 lead in the first quarter.

The Huskies converted 7 of 9 third downs in the first half and have simply been consistently beating LSU to the punch.

And this is a Washington team that has been one of the worst major college teams over the last several years. The Huskies were 0-12 last season.

The game is looking much like the near disaster against Troy last season.

Amazingly, the Tigers still lead 17-13. But they are in a very dangerous situation that could be the school's most embarrassing loss since LSU fell to Miami of Ohio in 1986.

It didn't happen, but it [a loss] could have. Fortunately the defense was a little better in the 2nd half, and Jefferson played well. I like him and Keiland on the option in the last TD drive.
