BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The LSU defense hopes to fix the problems that led to a 44-41 loss to Georgia Saturday.
“Without much detail, I can just tell you there was a signaling issue and a player to player communication that there was difficulty in. There was at least one player sideline difficulty,” LSU head coach Les Miles explained Monday.
The Tiger defense gave up 196 rushing yards and 298 passing yards to Georgia. The LSU offense went blow for blow with the Bulldogs but came up one score short of forcing overtime. This weekend they’ll take on another set of Bulldogs when they face Mississippi State.
“There's not a chance that we'll be looking ahead. This is a program, like most college programs, when they get to the end of the week; they really need to have victory. The work they put in is so significant, this will not be a difficult week for us to get our eyes open to how quality the opponent is,” Miles said.
LSU has completely dominated the series with Mississippi State. The Bulldogs from Starkville have only beaten LSU three times since 1985 and have dropped 13 straight games to the Tigers.
