LSU Vs. West Virginia Score: Turnovers A Problem For Mountaineers Offense In First Quarter

It’s still 7-0 near the end of the first quarter as the first three West Virginia drives have ended with a punt, a fumble and an interception.

After WVU’s first drive stalled out with a punt (due in part to a personal foul penalty), LSU scored on a touchdown pass by Jarrett Lee. On WVU’s next drive, Geno Smith completed a pass to Brad Starks, but Tyrann Mathieu forced a fumble and then recovered it himself.

The Mountaineer defense then forced a three-and-out, but on the ensuing drive, Smith completed a few short passes, but then was picked off by Brandon Taylor.

That gave the Tigers great field position at the 50 yard line, and they’re now driving.

Obviously, it’s going to be a long night for WVU if it keeps turning the ball over against a team this good. The Mountaineer defense has done reasonably well to hold the Tigers to seven points so far.
