It took more than a half to get rolling, but top ranked LSU finally did against Western Kentucky.

Hahnville's Alfred Blue ran for two second half touchdowns as LSU routed the Hilltoppers 42-9 Saturday night before an announced crowd of 92,917 at Tiger Stadium.

LSU's Jordan Jefferson made his first start at quarterback in the 2011 season. Jarrett Lee was announced as the starter in pregame, but Jefferson quarterback the Tigers into the fourth quarter.

Jefferson completed 8 of 14 passes for 168 yards, including a 59 yard first quarter touchdown pass to Rueben Randle. Lee threw a 5 yard fourth quarter touchdown pass to Kadron Boone. LSU head coach Les Miles addressed the issue before reporters could even ask. Said Miles, "It was a one game decision. We will go from here."

He said Lee could end up starting games later this season.

With LSU leading 21-9, Blue raced 45 yards up the middle to score late in the third quarter. Blue added a 4 yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

LSU is 10-0 for the first time since 1958. That year the Tigers won their first of 3 national championships. The others were in 2003 and 2007.

Les Miles won his 100th game as a college head coach. 72 of those wins are at LSU.
