(AP) Nick Brossette scored three touchdowns, Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for a career-high 136 yards and two TDs, and LSU beat Louisiana Tech.
The Tigers (4-0) were favored by about three touchdowns and raced to a 24-0 lead, only to see the Bulldogs (2-1) pull as close as 24-21 on J'Mar Smith's 42-yard touchdown pass to Adrian Hardy early in the fourth quarter.
LSU immediately responded with a touchdown drive of its own, highlighted by Joe Burrow's 28-yard timing pass down the right sideline to Dee Anderson, who narrowly stayed in bounds as he made the catch in tight coverage. The Tigers also benefited from a pass interference penalty in the end zone before Brossette's 2-yard run gave LSU a two-score lead again. Edwards-Helaire scored his second touchdown on LSU's next possession late in the game.
Burrow was 16 of 28 for 191 yards.
