BATON ROUGE, La. -- Improvement in the offense and bowl games were both big topics when LSU coach Les Miles spoke with the media Wednesday in the SEC's weekly teleconference. The Tigers (8-2), ranked No. 7 in the BCS, play their last home game Saturday against Ole Miss (5-5).

1. Offense has arrived: Asked about his teams improved offense in the last two games, Miles praised his offense.

"This is us," he said. "We're going to line up and make teams defend the run and the pass on the same down and distance."

The Tigers have improved drastically since the bye week, especially quarterback Zach Mettenberger and the passing game. The Tigers have thrown for 571 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in their last two games, against Alabama and Mississippi State. LSU has averaged 413.5 yards in those two games, despite playing against an Alabama defense that was ranked No. 1 in the country.
