LSU won 37-17. UNION Career Services to fill old bookstore Center scheduled to open fall 2013 Ben Wallace Senior Contributing Writer On the ﬁrst play of the drive, Mettenberger hit sophomore receiver Jarvis Landry for 15 yards. On the next play, he completed a 36-yarder to junior receiver James Wright. Following an incompletion, Mettenberger laid out a perfect pass to junior running back Spencer Ware Separated by a brisk ten-minute walk, LSU Career Service’s two sometimes-hard-to-ﬁnd locations will soon move into one centralized venue in the heart of campus. The Olinde Career Center, scheduled to open in fall 2013, will occupy most of the former bookstore on the Student Union’s ﬁrst and second ﬂoors, merging the physically divided organization into one building for the ﬁrst time in its more than 25-year existence. Currently, Career Services operates out of two locations: the ﬁrst ﬂoor of Patrick F. Taylor Hall and the basement of Coates Hall. “Students have described the Coates Hall location as a EXPECTATIONS, see page 10 UNION, see page 10 Metting Expectations Offense leads Tigers past Bulldogs James Moran Sports Contributor LSU coach Les Miles showed conﬁdence in junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger, and he rewarded his coach with a strong performance in the No. 9 Tigers’ 37-17 victory against No. 22 Mississippi State on Saturday night. Mettenberger completed 19of-30 passes for 273 yards with two touchdowns and perhaps most importantly, no turnovers. “You’re seeing the coaches have more conﬁdence in us,” Mettenberger said. “They are mixing it up, more run/pass and being more balanced. Guys are making plays, having conﬁdence and having fun out there.” The biggest display of Miles’ new-found conﬁdence came in the last minute of the ﬁrst half. After State kicked a ﬁeld goal to cut the lead to 13-10, LSU got the ball at its own 29-yard line. Miles said LSU had been working on the two-minute drill in practice all week. He decided to let the offense go to work. HOMECOMING Newly crowned king, queen see themselves as regular students Jacy Baggett Contributing Writer The football ﬁeld was ﬂooded Saturday night with some of the University’s most spirited students clad in purple and gold suits, patiently awaiting the announcement of who will carry the legacy of homecoming king and queen. Taylor Cox, 22-year-old Student Government president, and Kendall Knobloch, 21-year-old member of Chi Omega sorority, both wore shocked expressions when they were crowned the University’s 2012 Homecoming King and Queen during the halftime show at Saturday night’s football game. Cox, a mass communication senior, said he didn’t realize he had won until the reigning king approached him and said congratulations. “Actually I couldn’t hear anything on the ﬁeld. I didn’t know I won until Zachary Corbin came up to me and said ‘Congratulations,’” Cox said. Knobloch, a ﬁnance senior, said she doesn’t remember much from the crowning moment. “It all happened so fast. The ﬁrst real thing I remember is going to hug my friends,” Knobloch said. Knobloch said she is waiting to watch a video that her friend ﬁlmed of the night to remember the details. Cox and Knobloch both said it was a night they would remember for the rest of their lives.
