LSU put a hidden-yardage special on Miami

0:00: LSU 33, Miami 17: There was a time when LSU led this game by 30 points. If you only looked at the scoreboard, it certainly looked like the Canes were getting the doors blown off of them. But the final score didn’t show how close the actual play was on the field, with Miami actually producing more total yardage and yards per play.

What’s not shown on that stat recap: average starting field position. The Tigers had their drives start on average at their own 43-yard line. When you basically start every drive at midfield, it’s hard not to win.

LSU dominated special teams as well. Note the Tigers were perfect on four field goals, including a long of 54, while the Canes missed one. Miami also shanked a few punts, averaging a mere 36.4 per punt on the night, and LSU added a 22-yard punt return as well.

Add together all those field goals that were in LSU’s favor (four makes and one Miami miss) to the pick six, and you have 22 points in a game won by 16. The Tigers won with the little things.
