LSU Head Coach Les Miles put his team through their second scrimmage of spring practices on Thursday afternoon in Tiger Stadium.

In the Tigers' last scrimmage, the defense had snuffed the offense's ability to score. There was some improvement shown by the offense in yesterday's scrimmage as it was able to score three touchdowns against the defense.

However, that may be a "glass half full" view of the unit's performance as Miles admitted that the offense was given a shorter field, being allowed to start on the 50-yard line.

Actual statistics from the scrimmage were unavailable, but Miles stated that Jarrett Lee threw two touchdown passes (one to Deangelo Peterson for 25 yards and one to Brandon LaFell for 23 yards).

Running back Keiland Williams was also said to have scored on an 18-yard run. Miles also said that running backs Richard Murphy and Charles Scott performed well.

Miles summarized his take on the practice saying, "It was pretty evenly matched. The offense made some plays. The defense made some plays. It was a good go. A lot of ones versus ones and twos versus twos."

The Tigers will not practice again until April 13, once the team has returned from spring break. Their spring game will take place on April 18.
