It was tough sledding for the LSU Tigers early on in the home opener against McNeese. After forcing the punt by the Cowboys, the home team struggled on third downs very early on. The offense needed two fourth-down conversions to get into the end zone for the first time.

The defense didn’t allow McNeese to gain any traction, but the lack of offensive execution kept the Cowboys in this game. At least in the first half. The unit was able to set up the second touchdown of the game. A fumble recovered by Jaquelin Roy set up the offense at the Cowboys’ 28-yard line. A 21-yard run by Ty Davis-Price got the team in the redzone. Johnson found Kayshon Boutte for a three-yard touchdown reception.

On the next drive, it stalled in McNeese territory but Cade York put them on the board once again. He boomed a kick from 55-yards out after Johnson was sacked on third down.
