LSU Paid Troy $985000 For Tonight's Loss At Tiger Stadium

  • Does Ed Orgeron's Huge Buyout Mean His Job is Safe

Former Boyle County High School and University of Kentucky player/coach Neal Brown got his biggest win as a head coach Saturday night when Troy won 24-21 at LSU.

"We were outcoached and outplayed tonight, that's the bottom line", said LSU coach Ed Orgeron, whose team fell to 3-2 and nearly certainly will be unranked entering SEC play on the road against Florida next week. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS. Silvers completed a 7-yard pass to Deondre Douglas on third-and-4 at the LSU 24 for a first down.

And, this time, they hung on for an epic victory.

They fumbled on the game's first play to set up a Troy touchdown, missed on a short field goal on their best first-half drive, let the Trojans kick a weird field goal, gave up a 74-yard, up-the-middle run to fall behind 17-0 to open the third quarter and then lost a fumble at the Troy 7-yard line just when it looked as if they had some life in the third quarter.

LSU gave Myles Brennan another extended run at quarterback in the second half Saturday against Troy. NMSU's Tyler Rogers threw for 344 yards and two TDs, but the Aggies rushed for just 11 yards on 14 attempts.

Stopping the run: Coming into the game, Troy had allowed an average of just 27 rushing yards in the first half of its games.

Troy 7, LSU 0 (END Q1): The Tigers have 93 offensive yards, including 83 on the ground, but no points to show for it.

Defensively, end Christian LaCouture led LSU with a career-best 12 tackles including two sacks and a pass breakup.

Running back Darrel Williams injured his ankle in the second half of Saturday's loss, but Orgeron "thinks he's going to be alright", the coach said. Outside linebacker Corey Thompson suffered a stinger to his right shoulder/neck area against the Trojans, the LSU radio broadcast team reported.

"I took the blame the first time, and I'll take it again", Orgeron said.

Troy controlled the game most of the way, leading 17-0 early in the third quarter.

Start a new streak: LSU's last non-conference home loss was to UAB on September 23, 2000, which was Nick Saban's first season in Baton Rouge.

Alex Hornibrook passed for 197 yards and a touchdown, settling down after two interceptions in the first half.

The questions grew larger over LSU's future after the Tigers fell to 3-2 before the halfway mark of the season.

His 191 yards rank 10th in Troy school history. The ensuing onside kick is recovered by the Trojans at their own 45-yard line.

But following the 20-yard Trojan gain to the LSU 20 with Troy out of timeouts, officials later ruled the clock should have stopped for the first down and 2 seconds were put back on the clock.

All the pieces are in place for LSU to succeed against most opponents, let alone what should've been an overmatched foe from the Sun Belt Conference.

Troy withstood a vicious rally by the Tigers.

Troy put itself in ideal position in the first half because of its stellar play on third down.

The Trojans then drove 64 yards on 10 plays to take a 24-7 lead, as the drive was capped by Josh Anderson's 7-yard run to paydirt.

Etling returned midway through the fourth quarter and threw a 34-yard scoring pass to Russell Gage, making it 24-14 with 7:41 left. Etling had not thrown an interception this season until the final seconds when LSU was desperately driving for the tying field goal.

LSU named Orgeron its interim head coach a year ago, when it fired Les Miles after a 2-2 start.
