Slimmer, faster Ware looking like old self

BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger knew days before LSU's 12-10 win over Auburn last week that getting Spencer Ware back from injury in the LSU backfield would help, if for no other reason than this:

"Not knocking anybody," he said, "but Spencer Ware is probably our best back at pass protect."

As the game unfolded, he proved pretty good at other areas, too. His 33-yard catch-and-run from Mettenberger in the Tigers' last possession helped LSU seal the win. And his team-high 90 rushing yards on 16 carries proved he's still a tough, powerful runner. In total, he had 134 yards of offense against Auburn, a game that served as a reminder why he was the unquestioned top back for the first seven games of the 2011 season.
