Need to Improve Numbers

  • Louisiana: 60
  • South Carolina: 67

3rd Down Percentage

  • Louisiana: 5 of 14 (35.7%)
  • South Carolina: 4 of 14 (28.5%)

Important Penalties

The numbers aren’t terrible (4 and 7), but two holding penalties on back-to-back drives crippled the Cats from getting any momentum in the 3rd quarter.  Jon Toth’s holding penalty inside the 5-yard line forced the Cats to kick a field goal.  Denzil Ware also had an interception taken away in the 1st quarter because of a late hit by Josh Forrest.
