After getting roughed up in the first quarter, the Huskies were able to keep LSU out of the endzone for the entirety of the second quarter. While posting another 117 yards of offense for 231 total, LSU was kept from the endzone even on a 1st and goal effort.
But while Washington's defense tightened up, the offense is being stifled. It's best drive was stopped just past midfield, and the Huskies got just 52 yards in the quarter. That brings their total to just 70 yards. Quarterback Keith Price is 10-23 for 81 yards, while the Huskies' leading rusher is Dezden Petty, who has four yards on two carries.
Fortune seemed to give the Huskies a break early, as LSU returner Odell Beckham fumbled the game's opening kickoff. But on a 20-yard field, Washington moved the ball only four yards and settled for a field goal.
