Surging Troy upsets No 25 LSU 24-21 at Death Valley

LSU Tigers running back Derrius Guice makes his way into the stadium before the Tigers take on the Troy Trojans in Baton Rouge on Saturday

LSU trailed Troy by 17 points, and while the Tigers would score two touchdowns to end it at 24-21, it was clear that many Louisianians were too offended about having to rally from 24-7 against Troy to care about any potential rally from 24-7 against Troy. LSU fumbled on its first play, turned the ball over on downs on its second possession, punted twice and missed a field goal in the first half.

The first touchdown for LSU came with Brennan in the game.

Injured players who did not dress out for the game were tight end John David Moore, nose tackle Ed Alexander, starting right tackle Toby Weathersby and starting defensive end Rashard Lawrence. Out there in the mist of the evening sat listeners surely wincing, wondering why the leaders and competitors hadn't been identified already, exhausted of the voice in the way Southeastern Conference football fans grow exhausted of a voice that lost to Florida on an unguarded Hail Mary, lost to Georgia by 41-0 and allowed Georgia Tech an unsightly 535 rushing yards.

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

"Two different times in this venue here, 2004 and 2008 we had the opportunity to win the game". Silvers was key in the turnover department in which he had none.

Quarterback Jake Fromm accounted for three of Georgia's touchdowns, rushing for two and throwing for another score. To start the second quarter, down only 10-0, Tennessee got a hopeful interception, 27 yards from paydirt that never would pay. After the game, Troy's Twitter account did not pull any punches.

Silvers scored on a 1-yard run on the next play for a 7-0 lead with 13:13 to play in the opening period after Evan Legassey's extra point.

The fumble lost by the Tigers was their first in 315 rushing attempts, dating back to the second quarter of last season's game versus Florida on November 19.

I think pretty much everybody enjoys having Ed Orgeron (career record: 25-31) in and around college football in one capacity or another, ideally answering questions on camera as often as possible. The drive covered 51 yards in three plays and took only 28 seconds.

It's also the Trojans' second win over a Southeastern Conference school.

Even more importantly, the Trojans went 10-of-18 on third down and converted both fourth-down plays against a normally stout LSU defense.

Now in the final 15 minutes of football, LSU answered with a 3-play drive to cut the lead to 10. Etling ended up going back into the game later after freshman Myles Brennan threw an interception.

NO. 10 WISCONSIN 33, NORTHWESTERN 24: Jonathan Taylor had two touchdowns runs to help the offense overcome a sluggish start, and Wisconsin held off Northwestern in a Big Ten game in Madison, Wis.

If LSU feels buyer's remorse, it probably won't act on it.

.

LSU's on-side kick was recovered by the Trojans at their 45.

And LSU's loss was against Troy, a Sun Belt Conference team. LSU would likely need to move in on Kelly quickly, as the Tennessee Volunteers will also be quite interested in his services. The Trojans already had a history at Tiger Stadium. But Etling was intercepted after a long pass to DJ Chark.
