BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Freshman Malik Nabers had a career-high 143 yards receiving and a touchdown as LSU defeated Louisiana-Monroe 27-14.
Snapping a three-game losing streak, the Tigers (5-6, 2-5 SEC) continued to struggle to develop any sort of rhythm offensively, scoring only 17 points well into the third quarter against the nation’s 115th-ranked scoring defense in ULM (4-7, 2-5 Sun Belt).
Max Johnson was 22-of-33 passing for 319 yards and two touchdowns for LSU, which kept its hopes of bowl eligibility alive heading into its regular-season finale against No. 16 Texas A&M.
