Les Miles: 'No one' satisfied with LSU's passing game

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Les Miles says no one at LSU is satisfied with the Tigers' passing offense right now.

The coach says he'll look to get struggling quarterback Jordan Jefferson on track against a Tennessee squad that gave up 429 yards passing last weekend against Alabama-Birmingham.

So far, No. 12 LSU has relied heavily on its SEC-leading defense, strong special teams and a solid running game in racing to a 4-0 start. The Tigers have averaged only 110 yards passing per game.

Tennessee coach Derek Dooley says his offense faces a tough test against LSU's defense, which has 11 sacks and six interceptions. The Volunteers' young line has allowed 14 sacks, and Dooley has been working on schemes to better protect quarterback Matt Simms.
