No. 3 LSU defeats winless Idaho 63-14

Ronald Martin and Lavar Edwards each intercepted deflected passes and returned them for scores, and No. 3 LSU rolled to a 63-14 victory over winless Idaho on Saturday night.

LSU intercepted Idaho's Dominique Balckman four times, with Martin snagging two, en route to an NCAA FBS record 40th-straight non-conference regular season victory.

LSU (3-0) also set a Tiger stadium mark with 20 straight home wins, while extending its nation-long regular-season winning streak to 16 games.

LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger passed for 222 yards and two TDs.

Kenny Hilliard rushed for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Freshman running back Jeremy Hill scored twice in his Tigers debut and Alfred Blue also had a rushing TD.

Blackman was 23 of 36 for 174 yards and two TDs. Gary Walker had a 94-yard interception return for Idaho (0-3), setting up the Vandals' first touchdown.
