Jefferson Returns, Number 1 LSU Whips Kentucky, 35-7 [PHOTOS]
LSU coach Les Miles sent quarterback Jordan Jefferson, #9, into the game against Kentucky in the first quarter for the first time since his suspension was lifted this past week.
The boos started when the troubled quarterback stepped out on the field. That only incteased their celebration when Jefferson stretched across the goal line to give the Tigers a lead they held on to in a 35-7 victory over Kentucky.
LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery said. “Jordan’s been through a whole lot, so now he can tell the story of how, ‘I went through this, bounced back, came back on the team, and now we’re all a big family again.'”
Jefferson was reinstated this week after a grand jury reduced charges the quarterback faces in connection with an Aug. 19 bar fight to a misdemeanor.
Lee remained the starter and played most of the game, struggling at times but hitting Odell Beckham Jr. for a spectacular 51-yard score, and their second touchdown connection of 50-plus yards in two games.
