ATHENS, Ga. —
More encouraging: LSU rushed for only 77 yards on 36 carries, though the Tigers were able to get outside with more regularity in the second half.
“We played very well on first and second down,” Richt said. “We stopped the run extremely well, or at least slowed it down. We got ourselves in some really good situations on third down, as far as down and distance. We just didn’t get the stops. They got a lot of their biggest plays on third down. When we get in those situations, we’ve got to get off the field. We didn’t do a good enough job of that.”
