Lee leads No. 2 LSU over No. 16 WVU 47-21

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Jarrett Lee threw three touchdown passes, Michael Ford ran for two scores and No. 2 LSU made a case to be No. 1, beating No. 16 West Virginia 47-21 Saturday night.

The Tigers (4-0) converted two turnovers into scores, built a big early lead and withstood West Virginia's strong comeback for its third win over a ranked opponent this season, with all of three coming away from home. Every win so far has been by double digits.

Lee's three TD passes tied a career high and matched his output of the three previous games. He finished 16 of 28 for 180 yards.

West Virginia (3-1) outgained LSU 533-366. West Virginia's Geno Smith set school records for completions (38), attempts (65) and passing yards (463). But he was intercepted twice after making one in the previous three games.
