After suffering the program’s first loss against a team from the Sun Belt Conference, the LSU Tigers bounced back with a 17-16 victory over Florida in the Swamp. It was a hard fought victory for the Tigers, who finished with three freshmen on the offensive line because of injuries.
The week leading up to the Florida game was a rough one for the LSU football team. The criticism of Orgeron was intense and Coach Orgeron had to fire back at a couple of fans during his call-in radio shows. He says the team grew closer during the week.
Some analysts said the LSU football team was soft after the loss to Troy. Orgeron says the Tigers took that criticism to heart.
