STARKVILLE, Miss. — STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Zach Mettenberger threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns, Odell Beckham Jr. had 179 yards receiving and two TDs, and No. 10 LSU pushed past Mississippi State 59-26 on Saturday night.

Mettenberger completed 25 of 29 passes in another impressive performance during the senior's breakout season. Beckham was his favorite target — the two hooked up for nine completions.

LSU's Jeremy Hill added 157 yards rushing and two touchdowns. The Tigers (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) have won 14 straight over Mississippi State (2-3, 0-2) dating back to 1999.

It was a tight game until the first play of the fourth quarter, when Mettenberger found Beckham for a 33-yard touchdown pass to give the Tigers a 38-26 lead.

Mississippi State's Dak Prescott threw for 106 yards and rushed for 103 more. Jameon Lewis caught seven passes for 111 yards and a touchdown.
