LSU is 8-0 under John Chavis when scoring a defensive touchdown
If history is any indicator, as long as LSU scores a defensive touchdown on Saturday against South Carolina they'll end the game as winners. We know...easier said than done.
Last week we noted that 100 yards rushing was the magic number under Les Miles, where the Tigers are 47-0 when rushing for over 100 yards and holding opponents to under 100 yards on the ground. In their loss to Florida last weekend, they ran for just 42 yards, and allowed 176 yards rushing. So while that streak may still be alive, it's not exactly the way that they'd want to keep it intact.
This morning we noticed that LSU is 8-0 under defensive coordinator John Chavis when scoring a defensive touchdown. The Tigers are 12-1 under Les Miles in that same category dating back to 2005. Add to that the fact that LSU has won 23 straight games when winning the turnover battle (a streak that dates back to 2008) and you've got to feel pretty confident when the Tigers score or win the turnover battle.
So far this season, South Carolina has lost 8 fumbles and thrown 2 interceptions.
In the overall series, LSU holds an impressive 16-2-1 edge over South Carolina (with the Gamecocks last win back in 1994, an 18-17 win) , but Steve Spurrier is 11-3 (and 5-2 in Baton Rouge) all time against the Tigers. His offenses have averaged 32 points per contest, while his defenses have given up just over 14 points per game against the Tigers.
The Gamecocks are riding a 10 game winning streak coming into Saturday's game, dating back to last season. That streak is the longest in the nation, with Alabama, Oregon and West Virginia just behind them with 9 consectutive wins.
With kickoff scheduled for 8pm ET, the Gamecocks win streak is on line. Les Miles is 57-5 in night games, including an impressive 35-2 mark in Tiger Stadium.
