    Times-Picayune Coverage of the LSU game

    LSU hammers its way to a win LSU's Les Miles can enjoy
    We now return you to your regularly scheduled sweaty, stinky, smash-mouth Southeastern Conference football. Where yards are harder to come by than open parking spots on the LSU campus. Where it seems like third-down plays are grunts and a bunch of helmet cracking.

    Where it's about substance not style, where you lower your head for extra yardage, where helmets keeping flying off because everyone really is trying to rip each other's heads off.

    And finally where the winning head coach is so juiced about being the hard-fought victor that he takes a simple post-game media question and turns into an automatic ESPN SportsCenter soundbite.

    After six games of playing mostly Arena League football in which the score roughly equals an SEC basketball game, No. 10 LSU proved on a toasty Saturday that it is still equipped to win old school when the situation arises.

    Jeremy Hill and LSU grind out a victory over Florida

    With the Tigers locked in a hard-hitting struggle against the best defense in the Southeastern Conference, LSU needed Jeremy Hill to perform and the sophomore running back rose to the occasion.

    The normally high-flying LSU passing attack was limited to just 152 yards, leaving most of the heavy lifting to Hill and the ground game. Hill responded and accounted for nearly half of the Tigers' total yards from scrimmage.
    Hill said the victory proved there is more than one way for the Tigers to win a football game.

    "We can win shoot-outs and we can win tough, physical running games," Hill said. "That's what kind of game it was today, it was a tough game. Each team's running game had to be successful for them to win the game. I think our running game was a little more successful."

    LSU defeats Florida despite a quiet night from Zach Mettenberger: Notebook

    Zach Mettenberger's aerial assault of the Southeastern Conference hit a speed bump in the form of the Florida defense, but the quarterback was content with simply playing well enough to win to secure a 17-6 victory.

    For the first time this season Mettenberger, was held without a touchdown pass. He completed just 9-of-17 passes for a season-low 152 yards.
    But matched up against the top-ranked defense in the SEC, Mettenberger said winning the game was his only concern.

    I'd say that was a pretty fair assessment. They did not give UF much credit but that's what a home town paper is supposed to do!
