Zach Mettenberger threw for five touchdown passes Thursday night in LSU's second scrimmage of August camp.

But head coach Les Miles insisted it was the defense that carried the day in the 120-play scrimmage held inside Tiger Stadium.

"We had about five drives that started in the red zone, so there were a number of opportunities for us to score," Miles said. "I think the defense probably won the day."
