BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Zach Mettenberger passed for three touchdowns, Jeremy Hill ran for two and eighth-ranked LSU easily defeated Kent State, 45-13, on Saturday night.
Hill rushed 11 times for 117 yards, all in the first two quarters, as LSU (3-0) looked sound in its final tuneup before opening Southeastern Conference play against Auburn next weekend.
Mettenberger connected with Jarvis Landry on touchdown passes of 21 and 31 yards. His other scoring pass went for 5 yards to Odell Beckham Jr.
Terrance Magee added a 12-yard scoring run.
Kent State quarterback Colin Reardon completed 20 of 29 passes for 190 yards, ran for a short touchdown and was not intercepted. However, the Golden Flashes (1-2) allowed at least 570 yards for a second straight week and never threatened after falling behind 21-0.
