LSU vs. Tennessee final score: Tigers take care of Vols

Tennessee remains winless in conference play.

Surprisingly, Brady Hoke wasn’t the answer for the Tennessee Volunteers.

LSU went into Neyland Stadium and took care of the Vols with relative ease, picking up a 30-10 win against the Vols.

Also, some people thought Jon Gruden was getting ribs with Peyton Manning before the game.

So, that happened.

Back to the game, it was never really all that close.

LSU scored three points in the first, the only team to score in the quarter. Then Tennessee knotted it up with a field goal but Darrel Williams and Danny Etling each had a rushing touchdown to put the Tigers up 17-3. Tennessee pulled within seven late in the half, but that was the only touchdown of the game for the Vols.

LSU pulled away in the second half, as Williams found the end zone again, as did Darius Guice.

It’s pretty obvious that Tennessee is just running out the clock on this season, but as far as we can tell they’ve never had a winless conference record. They may this year if they lose to Vanderbilt next week.

Meanwhile, LSU hosts Texas A&M next week for a chance to improve to 9-3.
