BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU's 41-3 win over Washington allowed the Tigers to tie an FBS record with 39 consecutive non-conference, regular-season wins.

"I think that speaks to the strength of the school and the opportunities for all the athletes with the want and desire to participate," LSU coach Les Miles said."

LSU also tied the school record with its 19th straight win at Tiger Stadium. The current Tigers roster has 61 players who have never lost at home.

"Not a bad night," Miles said. "Nice to be a Tiger."

Especially a Tiger coached by Miles. The eighth-year LSU coach improved to 77-18 and 29-0 in regular-season non-conference games. He's 34-1 overall against non-conference opponents, with the one loss coming against Penn State in the Capitol One Bowl at the end of the 2009 season. Penn State later had to vacate the win in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

LSU has also won 23 consecutive games in September.
