LSU (2-0 overall) will try to become the first team in NCAA history to win 40 straight non-conference regular season games when the Tigers host Idaho at 7 p.m. on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. The game will be televised on LSU's pay-per-view network – TigerVision.
Last week, LSU tied Kansas State for the longest non-conference regular season winning streak in NCAA history at 39 with its 41-3 win over Washington. The victory over Washington also tied the LSU record for consecutive wins in Tiger Stadium at 19 in a row.
LSU is currently riding the nation's longest overall regular season winning streak at 15 consecutive victories, which dates back to the start of the 2011 season. Idaho (0-2) dropped its second straight contest, falling to Bowling Green, 21-13.
The Vandals, who are making their second trip to Tiger Stadium, are members of the Western Athletic Conference and are coached by Robb Akey.
In the only meeting between the teams, LSU posted a 53-20 win over Idaho in 1998. With its 41-3 win over Washington, 15 of LSU's last 16 wins have come by double-digits and the Tigers have scored 40 or more points in 12 of their last 16 contests.
LSU's offense, which is averaging 41.0 points and 472.5 yards per game, features the Nos. 2 and 3 rated rushers in the SEC in Alfred Blue (112.0 ypg) and Kenny Hilliard (93.5 ypg). Blue had his second straight 100-yard game last week with 101 yards and a TD vs. Washington.
Hilliard leads the SEC in scoring with 24 points (4 TDs) in two games. Junior QB Zach Mettenberger has thrown for 387 yards and a pair of TDs in LSU's two wins as he's completed 70.5 percent (31-of-44) of his passes with just one interception.
Jarvis Landry leads the Tigers in receiving with nine catches for 102 yards, while Kadron Boone has caught both of LSU's receiving TDs. Defensively, LSU is first in the SEC in total defense (201.0) and rushing defense (51.0) and second in scoring defense (8.5). LBs Kevin Minter (15 tackles) and Lamin Barrow (13) lead the Tigers in tackles.
