The embarrassing defensive start for LSU continued as Georgia State moved the ball up the field before the Tigers defense was assisted by a Panthers' holding penalty that nullified a first down play and enabled LSU to finally get a stop.
The Tigers took their first lead of the contest on their next possession on a 14 yard touchdown run by Jayden Daniels. The score ended a nine play, 53 yard drive as the first quarter came to an end. 14-7 Tigers.

The LSU offense continued to do what they do best, score! As the Tigers drove 80 yards in seven plays culminating with a 27 yard lazer dart from Jayden Daniels to Kyren Lacy giving LSU a 21-14 lead with 10:00 left in the first half.
The LSU defense finally came up with a huge stop, holding Georgia State on a 4th and seven. The turn over on downs gave the Tigers a first and ten at their own 30 yard line.
It took LSU one play to extend their lead as Daniels hit Brian Thomas Jr. in stride for a 70 yard touchdown, putting the Tigers up 28-14 with 2:26 left in the second quarter.
The Tigers were able to score one more time before the halftime break as Jayden Daniels found Kyren Lacy for a 13 yard touchdown, extending the LSU lead to 35-14 as the contest would head into the break.
HEISMAN HALFTIME ALERT: Jayden Daniels finished the first half going 15-19 for 282 yards with four touchdown passes, while rushing for 57 yards on four carries with a rushing touchdown...
LSU took the second half kickoff and marched 70 yards in eight plays, ending with a three yard touchdown pass from Daniels to Mac Markway, putting the Bayou Bengals up 42-14 with 11:00 left in the third quarter. Highlight of the drive was a nice 20 yard run to the Georgia State three yard line by Noah Cain.
LSU increased their advantage to 49-14 on a one yard touchdown plunge by Jayden Daniels, his seventh of the game, (5 passing, 2 rushing). The score capped a 63 yard, eight play drive.
LSU continued their onslaught on the Panthers as Jayden Daniels air it out deep, hitting Malik Nabers in the end zone for a 40 yard touchdown. The Tigers now led 56-14 after the five play 82 yard drive with 8:59 left in the contest.
After a horrible start, the LSU defense picked up their level of play in the second half, keeping Georgia State scoreless the rest of the way.
With the victory LSU is now 8-3 overall and 5-2 in SEC play.
