LSU rout of Texas A&M continues late-season surge that sets table for strong 2018

by Jerit 0 Comments

The heavy criticism that swirled around first-year coach Ed Orgeron and his LSU football team less than two months ago seem so much more distant.

The Tigers (9-3, 6-2) rolled past Texas A&M (7-5, 4-4) on Saturday, 45-21, to claim a sixth win in their past seven outings to not only salvage a bumpy September, but put together an impressive season overall.

And set the foundation nicely for the near-future in the process.

“After the Troy game (Sept. 30), I couldn’t think but about one second at a time, to be honest with you,” Orgeron said. “I could not look that far. I knew that we could get the team together, try to take it one day at a time, try to get the team right, fix the things that we could fix.

“After looking back at all the things that we went through, it’s a remarkable feat by a football team and our coaching staff.”
