    Terrence Magee ran for a pair of touchdowns and Zach Mettenberger passed for 251 yards and a key touchdown as the LSU Tigers beat TCU 37-27 on Saturday night in Dallas.

    The Tigers rolled up 448 yards of total offense against a TCU team that prides itself on defense. Magee and Alfred Blue combined for 184 of LSU’s 197 rushing yards in the game.

    With the Tigers leading 30-27 in the fourth quarter, Odell Beckham had a 75-yard kickoff return to set up Mettenberger’s 20-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry to seal the victory.
