BATON ROUGE — LSU’s defense, in particular that of the defensive line, shined in the first preseason game of camp for the Tigers Saturday afternoon in Tiger Stadium.

Saturday’s scrimmage was the first of two for the Tigers before opening the season on Sept. 4 against UCLA in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. LSU will scrimmage again next Saturday in Tiger Stadium before holding a simulated game last weekend.

“It was an outstanding day,” said LSU coach Ed Orgeron. “I thought our coaches did a tremendous job of getting our guys ready.

Offensively, the Tigers emphasized first, second and third down along with work in the red zone. Orgeron said next week the Tigers will focus on short-yardage, goal line and the two-minute drill.

Sophomore quarterback Max Johnson completed 11-of-19 passes for 127 yards and a touchdown, while true freshman Garrett Nussmeier connected on 11-of-17 passes for 225 yards and three scores.
