LSU's LaFell hitting his stride

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

It wasn't the hottest start to the season for LSU senior receiver Brandon LaFell. Almost quiet, really.

But he's on a roll now. LaFell caught his second touchdown pass of the game against Mississippi State to put the Tigers ahead 23-14 in the third quarter. He also caught two touchdown passes last week against Louisiana-Lafayette and has five on the season.

In his last 16 games, dating back to the start of the 2008 season, LaFell has 13 touchdowns. No other active receiver in the SEC is close to that pace.
