Mike Leach getting roasted following Mississippi State’s loss to LSU

Mike Leach and Mississippi State started out of the gate strong against LSU; however, things fell apart in the second half.

Mississippi State held a 13-0 lead over LSU late in the second quarter before LSU came roaring back. The Tigers scored just before halftime to cut the Bulldogs lead to 13-7.

MSU hit another field goal in the third quarter, but LSU dominated the second half. Quarterback Jayden Daniels finished 22-of-37 for 1 touchdown. He also rushed for 93 yards and 1 touchdown. LSU’s running game was too much for MSU’s defense in the second half.

MSU’s defense struggled covering receiver Malik Nabers in the second half, too, as he caught 6 passes for 76 yards on the night.

It was obvious that LSU played much better than MSU in the second half. It was also obvious the coaching adjustments that Brian Kelly and Matt House made in the second half were a major key. LSU’s defense stifled Leach’s offense in the second half.

Because of his team’s second-half collapse, Leach caught criticism after the loss to LSU.
