BATON ROUGE, La. -- Darrel Williams ran for two touchdowns, fellow freshman Leonard Fournette added another, and No. 10 LSU posted its second-straight shutout, 31-0 over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday night.
Williams scored on a tackle-breaking, 22-yard run, then added a 1-yard score.
Fournette scored from 24 yards out and Kenny Hilliard added a short scoring run for LSU (3-0) early in the fourth quarter, giving him three TDs in as many games.
ULM (2-1) kept the game close for one half, but the Warhawks' defense eventually wore down while their offense managed just 93 total yards and six first downs against a Tigers defense that has been in suffocating form since second half of their season opening comeback victory over Wisconsin.
Receiver Travin Dural had 79 yards on six catches for the Tigers.
