STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Jarrett Lee completed 21 of 27 passes
for 213 yards and a touchdown and No. 3 LSU defeated No. 25
Mississippi State 19-6 on Thursday night.
Lee was the unexpected star, firing conservative, but nearly
perfect passes all over the field. His 19-yard touchdown pass to
Rueben Randle with 11:56 left in the fourth quarter gave LSU a 16-6
His only mistake was an interception minutes later, but as it
had all game, LSU's defense stuffed Mississippi State with little
trouble. LSU (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) had 14 tackles for
a loss and held the Bulldogs (1-2, 0-2) to 123 total yards and two
LSU has won 12 straight games in the series, dating to 1999.
