Halftime in Lexington: LSU 17, UK 14

LEXINGTON, Ky. - All things considered, Rich Brooks probably doesn't feel so bad to be down three at halftime. LSU controlled the ball for much of the second quarter, and capitalized on an Andre Woodson interception midway through the frame. The Tigers took a 17-7 lead with less than three minutes left in the half, but Woodson led a quick response from UK. But, you probably know that if you were watching on CBS.

Here's what each team needs to do in the second half:

LSU should continue to try and wear down the UK defense. Halftime came at a good time for the Cats, because they're likely gassed after spending the majority of the second quarter on the field. Look for the Tigers to keep pounding Charles Scott, and we may see more of Ryan Perrilloux in the second half to give the Tigers a speedier threat at quarterback. Scott softening up the interior of the defense could open things up for lightning-quick Trindon Holliday out of the backfield.

UK must force a turnover (or two or three). Not only will the defense need a few of them to slow down the LSU offense, but the UK offense could use a couple of short fields to try and build a lead. LSU has dominated opponents in the second half this season, and UK must make some big plays on both sides of the ball if it wants to pull the shocker.
