Top-ranked Tigers crush Tennessee

The top-ranked LSU Tigers used Jarrett Lee's 7.

Lee completed 10-of-14 passes for 115 yards and two touchdowns for the Tigers (7-0, 4-0 SEC), who are off to a 7-0 start for the second straight year.

Jefferson carried the ball 14 times for 73 yards and a score for LSU, which completed its second straight sweep of the SEC Eastern Division. For the first time in school history, LSU has swept teams from the other half of the league in back-to-back years.

Spencer Ware rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries for the Tigers, who have won all seven of their games this season by double figures. He also caught a 13-yard TD pass.

With starting quarterback Tyler Bray (thumb) sidelined, Matt Simms completed just 6-of-20 passes for 128 yards and two interceptions for the Volunteers (3-3, 0-3), who have lost three of their last four since opening the season with back-to-back wins.

Despite a sore hamstring, Tauren Poole carried the ball 19 times for 70 yards and a score in defeat.
