Oklahoma's defense did look good in the Tulsa and Florida State game, but was exposed this weekend by Missouri's dual-threat quarterback, James Franklin who ran for over 100 yards.
Though they did a good job against E.J. Manual, the FSU quarterback was knocked out with a shoulder injury in the second half of the game.
LSU's defense has been impressive all year. They held the Oregon Ducks to 27 points in the opener, which doesn't sound great until you consider that the Ducks nearly double that output in scoring average, at 52 per game.
When you remove that game, Oregon averages 60 points per game!
LSU held Mississippi State to six points, and West Virginia's high octane offense to 21 points. In that game, they held WVU to seven at the half, and shut them out in the fourth quarter of the game.
On offense, Oklahoma has yet to completely settle down with Landry Jones throwing four interceptions in the young season, while LSU continues to use a balanced attack to put up points, and limit mistakes.
To that point, Jarrett Lee was interception free on Saturday night, and Lee has been picked off just once this season.
