Same old story on offense, Tigers stumble and fall to Wisconsin 16-14


LSU fans have seen this bad movie on offense, many times before.

The 5th rankedTigers were held to 14 first downs and one offensive touchdown in a 16-14 loss to Wisconsin Saturday in the first Lambeau Field College Football Classic.

Rafael Gaglianone booted a 47 yard field goal with 3:47 to give the Badgers the lead. Les Miles lost his first season opening game at LSU in 12 tries.

LSU trailed 13-0 in the third quarter before rallying with 14 consecutive points. Defensive back Tre’Davious White intercepted a Bart Houston pass and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown. After a Wisconsin fumble, quarterback Brandon Harris threw a 10 yard touchdown pass to Travin Dural.

But Harris completed only 12 of 21 passes for 131 yards, with two interceptions.

LSU was 2 for 10 on third down. The Tigers were held to 257 yards, and possessed the football for 23:03.
