Baton Rouge, LA (Sports Network) - Zach Mettenberger threw a pair of touchdown passes, and ninth-ranked LSU earned a 37-17 win over No. 22 Mississippi State.
The Tigers bounced back from a 21-17 home loss against top-ranked Alabama last week. The Crimson Tide were shocked at home earlier Saturday against Texas A&M.
J.C. Copeland ran for a touchdown, and Craig Loston sealed the outcome by racing 100 yards to the end zone on an interception return with 1:13 remaining, as the Tigers (8-2, 4-2 SEC) beat the Bulldogs for the 13th straight time.
Tyler Russell threw for one score for the Bulldogs (7-3, 3-3), who have lost to Alabama, Texas A&M and now LSU three weeks in a row.
