LSU blanks Tulane for first time in 40 years
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP)Brandon LaFell caught two touchdown passes, moving him into second on LSU's career list, and the ninth-ranked Tigers shut out Tulane for the first time since 1969, 42-0 on Saturday night.
Charles Scott rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns and freshman Russell Shepard scored his second career touchdown - and second in as many games - with a 19 yard run. Jordan Jefferson threw for 163 yards and two scores, both to LaFell, who has 22 career TDs, four behind Dwayne Bowe.
On the 50th anniversary of Billy Cannon's Halloween night, 89-yard punt return to beat Ole Miss, LSU's Trindon Holliday was unable to take a punt all the way back. He did, however, have a pair of 50-yard returns, the second setting up Scott's second touchdown.
