It wasn't pretty, but the LSU Tigers defeated the Idaho Vandals, 63-14.
The Tigers entered Tiger Stadium Saturday night as if they were in a daze. By not taking Idaho too seriously, LSU allowed two touchdowns in the first half against it, and Zach Mettenberger turned in his worst performance of his career.
Though the Tigers were resting some of their key starters, leading 28-14 at the half against Idaho is inexcusable. In fact, LSU had to rely on a few defensive touchdowns for separation in this game.
So before SEC play starts next week, the Tigers must get sharper on offense and defense. These are the grades for the starters after their victory against the Vandals.
