The Bearkat offense struggled against a great Louisiana State defense. Sam Houston State was held scoreless for the whole game as LSU forced sophomore quarterback Jared Johnson to miss easy throws and throw two interceptions because of heavy pressure. LSU shut down senior running back Keshawn Hill by limiting him to only three yards rushing.
Defense was atrocious for SHSU. The Bearkats gave up 400 total yards in the first half. Once again, SHSU struggled with finishing tackles. Tigers’ freshman Brandon Harris broke several tackles to find himself in the clear for a 46-yard touchdown. And just like last week, the Bearkats needed to cover the deep ball better.
The special teams did an okay job with limiting big plays. They gave up one big run the whole night. Special teams stepped up bigger than any other team and were the only light in a game full of darkness.
