    13 Proves very unlucky for Tennessee in 16-14 loss at LSU

    This game was eventually was won by the better team but the circumstances that gave them that win were crazy to say the least. After Tennessee was flagged for having twelve men on the field on what was seemingly the last play, LSU was allowed an untimed down and won the game on a one yard run by Ridley. To make a point they actually had thirteen on the field.

    The story of the game was the sloppy play of LSU with 9 penalties and losing the turnover battle by a 4-0 margin. They were lucky to escape with a win. Tennessee did not do much on offense only gaining just over 200 yards while allowing LSU just over 400 yards. That is how much turnovers change a game.

    LSU employed a two quarterback system for much of the game and maybe that was one of the reasons for the sloppy play. The other might be looking one game ahead to Florida next week.

    Game notes—LSU had 5 sacks for 41 yards in losses—LSU used 2 QB system for the first time this year—Held Tennessee to only 120 yards passing— Poole had over 100 yards rushing for Tennessee—Ridley 123 rushing for LSU
