BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU has been a big winner in recent years thanks to dominant defense and special teams. That remains true this year despite some glitches like turnovers that have given opponents short fields and special teams penalties that cost the Tigers yards in field position. Check out these statistics compiled by ESPN Stats and Information that illustrate LSU's dominance:

LSU’s opponents have 20 drives that started inside their own 20 yard line, tied for the most in FBS with UCLA and Florida State.

Punter Brad Wing has hit three touchbacks already and hitting just five last season. Yet, his ability to put the ball inside the 20 has still been oustanding. Add that to dominant kick coverage and opponents often start with their backs to their own goalline.
