ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- When Les Miles hired old friend Cam Cameron as LSU's new offensive coordinator, one of the big hopes was for the Tigers to have a more dynamic passing game.
Cameron made quite a first impression for 12th-ranked LSU.
The season-opening 37-27 win Saturday night over 20th-ranked TCU, a team known for solid defenses, was what Miles envisioned for second-year starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger with Cameron calling the plays.
Mettenberger threw for 251 yards. Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham became the LSU receiving duo since 2001 to both have 100 yards in the same game. The Tigers also had 197 yards rushing.
Miles believes Mettenberger will have games like that "pretty routinely from this point forward."
The Tigers play their home opener against UAB next Saturday.
