LSU football looked listless to start today's game against Wisconsin at Lambeau Field, but the Tigers have turned things around in a hurry.

With 6:58 left in the third quarter, Wisconsin shut down an LSU drive and forced a punt, up 13-0. Three plays later, Bart Houston did the one thing he really could not afford to: throw the ball directly to a Tigers defender. Tre'Davious White picked off the Badger's pass and took it 21 yards to the house to get LSU on the board at the 5:28 mark.

Three plays—and less than a minute of game time—later, George Rushing was stripped by Donte Jackson. Again, White was there to come up with the loose ball.

On LSU's first offensive play, embattled quarterback Brandon Harris hit superstar running back Leonard Fournette with a dime down the field for a big 31 yard pick-up.

The next play, Harris found Travin Dural on a screen. The star wide receiver put a nice stiff arm/stutter step move on safety D'Cota Dixon.

It didn't take long, but LSU took the lead and now has all the momentum against a Badgers squad that was absolutely rolling. The Tigers have also sucked the air out of a fired up Lambeau Field crowd. It hasn't been a great opening weekend for the SEC so far, but a Tigers win would certainly help matters for the conference here.
