BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Brandon Harris passed for a career-high 286 yards, with two of his three scoring passes going for more than 50 yards, and No. 5 LSU beat Western Kentucky 48-20 on Saturday night.

Leonard Fournette ran for 150 yards and a short touchdown on a soggy field, giving him 1,352 yards rushing and 15 TDs this season.

The Hilltoppers (6-2) were as close as 17-13 on Brandon Doughty's 39-yard touchdown pass to Antwane Grant in the third quarter, but LSU (7-0) scored the next 17 points.

Malachi Dupre caught a 55-yard scoring pass on LSU's opening series. Tigers freshman Tyron Johnson made a tough downfield catch over defender Wonderful Terry, then scampered about 20 yards for his 61-yard score in the third quarter.

Doughty, who came in averaging 387 yards passing, finished with 325 yards, three TDs and one interception against LSU.
