LSU coach Les Miles talked about the victory Saturday against Kent State and No. 6 LSU's upcoming game with Auburn. Here is the transcript of his press conference.
COACH MILES: I think we're doing a ‑‑ I think he's understanding what we want, doing the things. I think he's kind of ‑‑ he's geared in and his nine touchdown passes in three games is a school record. He leads the conference in pass efficiency with 45 for 69 attempts and 797 yards.
Last week, offensively we rushed for 300 and through for 270. Both backs Hill and Magee were over 200 yards. Those kinds of numbers means that the offensive line is doing a very strong job.
Defensively, I think we're making progress. I think we get better and better with each quarter. The young guys and the veterans feel more comfortable understanding their role. I think we'll continue to improve.
Ego Ferguson had eight tackles and really a big night and was named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week. I like our linebacker rotation still.
Lamin Barrow came out and we got some more young guys to work, which was good for us.
Craig Loston will be back this week. He probably could have played last week, but felt like the rest time would be beneficial and so we did that.
Chief is doing a good job. I mean, he's bringing young guys a long, veterans and newcomers all at the same time.
