We've all had ample opportunity tonight to witness what this LSU team does with breaks that go its way. We're now fairly certain the game is breaking open right about now because of UNC's inability to do the same (although in a day that saw Ole Miss blow a 31-10 lead to Jacksonville State and lose in double overtime, nothing is ever as out of reach as it seems).
UNC recovered an LSU fumble. Their capitalization: A two-yard rush, a sack, a three-yard loss rush, and a punt ... that Patrick Peterson returned for an 86-yard touchdown. LSU 23, UNC 10; four minutes remain in the half.
[UPDATE: In the time it took me to type the two short paragraphs above, the Tar Heels went three-and-out and LSU's Rueben Randle caught a 51-yard touchdown pass on the very next play. Talent differential can't be forgotten, either.)
