LSU Vs. WVU Final Score: Tigers Pile On In Fourth Quarter As West Virginia Loses, 47-21

The LSU Tigers piled on points in the fourth quarter and ended up blowing out WVU, 47-21. A kickoff return touchdown late in the third quarter gave the Tigers a 34-21 lead, and they added to that in the fourth, with rushing touchdowns by Michael Ford and Alfred Blue.

The Tigers are known as a strong defensive team, but today, it was the offense that got it done, although WVU’s turnovers in the first half certainly helped. Geno Smith actually racked up 463 yards (including 187 to Tavon Austin and 115 to Stedman Bailey) on an incredible 65 passing attempts, and the Mountaineers easily outgained the Tigers in total yards, 533 to 366. But the Mountaineers’ four turnovers – along with the special teams touchdown – ultimately did them in.

The Mountaineers will probably rank somewhere near the bottom of the top 25 in the college football rankings this week. They held tight with LSU much of the game and didn’t let the Tigers pull away until the very end. Ultimately, though, the score wasn’t close.
