Arlington (CBS Houston) - LSU picked up their second win at AT&T Stadium in three years beating TCU 37 to 27.

Both teams started off slow trading multiple field goals as the first quarter ended with LSU on top 9-6. After a 1-yard LSU touchdown run from J.C. Copeland, TCU’s B.J. Catalon returned the ensuing kickoff 100 yards to pull TCU within three, 13-10.

From there on out Cam Cameron’s, newly installed offense, lead by Zach Mettenberger slowly wore down the Horned Frogs. Mettenberger finished with 251 passing yards and 1 touchdown.

“I think that Zach will have nights like that pretty routinely from this point forward.” said LSU head coach Les Miles.

TCU was able to get within three points with a 39-yard field goal with 7:35 left in the fourth quarter but the Tigers quickly answered. Jarvis Landry’s 20-yard touchdown catch was the perfect example of LSU’s advantage. Landry out muscled a Horned Frog defender on a slant route to seal the victory.

“We knew it was a slant. They beat us with the slant before I called press coverage. I told them to come down. Both safeties knew it was going to be a play, and they didn’t make it.” said TCU head coach Gary Patterson.

For Les Miles, Saturday night’s victory didn’t mean it was time to relax.

“There were great things. We controlled the game the entire time. There are some things we need to fix. The things that we did right we need to do over and over again. The guys can have the success they deserve.”
