JEFFERSON RETURNS

LSU’s Jordan Jefferson heard plenty of boos in his return from a suspension that stemmed from a bar fight.

The embattled quarterback ended up turning those to cheers as he stretched across the goal line for a touchdown on his first play to give the top-ranked Tigers a lead they would not relinquish in a 35-7 victory over Kentucky.

Jefferson was reinstated this week after a grand jury reduced charges he faces in connection with an Aug. 19 bar fight to a misdemeanor.

Jarrett Lee remained the starter and played most of the game, but Jefferson was able to score on an early fourth-and-goal to set off cheers that drowned out the boos.
