Mississippi State Hit Hard By #2 LSU in College Football Season Opener

Craig Steltz had three of LSU's six

interceptions and the second-ranked Tigers manhandled Mississippi

State 45-0. LSU has beaten the Bulldogs eight straight times by a

combined 340-81 margin.

Bulldogs quarterback Michael Henig set a dubious school record

by throwing six picks. Henig also fumbled the snap on a

fourth-and-1 attempt on one of two Mississippi State forays into

LSU territory.

Mississippi State has lost 12 straight games to Top 10 opponents

and 11 of its last 13 home games.

LSU's Steltz, Curtis Taylor, Jonathan Zenon and Danny McCray had

interceptions in the first half. Steltz added two more in the

second half.

The Bulldogs next play at Tulane Sept. 8th.
