Homecoming spoiled: Troy upsets No. 25 LSU in Death Valley

The Trojans (4-1, 1-0 Sun Belt) led 17-0 early in the third quarter and by 24-7 midway through the fourth quarter, and held on.

"We've won three national championships; we've played against the "who's who's" of college football over the last 15 years and had some wins at our place. We did not play good football".

"We got beat on fundamentals tonight, blocking and tackling", he said. Freshman quarterback Myles Brennan, who played in the second half before Elting's return, was 4-for-7 with a touchdown and an interception. Dave Aranda and Matt Canada get paid lots of money due to their reputations as being the best young coordinators in the country.

No. 25 LSU (3-2) suffered through perhaps its most embarrassing loss of this century at the hands of the upstart Trojans (4-1), who celebrated and frolicked long into the night in their corner of Tiger Stadium in front a nice contingent of their fans who by then nearly outnumbered the home crowd. Tight end Foster Moreau had his first career two-touchdown game and finished with three catches for 41 yards.

It was a huge win for Troy and Brown, but he was quick to point out after the game that Troy is used to playing well in big games.

Etling replaced Brennan on LSU's next possession and immediately put the Tigers in the end zone.

Troy recovered LSU's onside kick attempt, but could only gain a single yard in three plays.

After a 24-21 loss to the Troy Trojans on Saturday night at Tiger Stadium, though, LSU staggered into that zone like a Tigers' fan who spent way too long preparing for the night. Athletic director Joe Alleva's decision to hire Orgeron last November was met with skepticism after a well-publicized flirtation with then-Houston (and now Texas) head coach Tom Herman.

LSU got the ball one last time with 18 seconds left at their own 9-yard line.

During the coach's weekly media luncheon on Monday, Orgeron said the Tigers offense needed some retooling, suggesting LSU may reduce its presnap motions and shifting, making things easier for the offense under first-year offensive coordinator Matt Canada. Florida got five rushing touchdowns from its running backs; its running backs had not scored a rushing touchdown in the past nine games. "It's something we've got to look at". Penn State (5-0, 2-0) turned two first-quarter turnovers into touchdowns to spark the rout.

That lesson should have become abundantly clear several times in Troy's 24-21 upset win on Saturday, which broke LSU's streak of 49 home wins against nonconference opponents in Tiger Stadium. Cedarius Rookard forced the fumble, and Kris Weatherspoon recovered deep in LSU territory. Maybe it just assumed itself superior to a team that arrived in Baton Rouge by six-hour bus ride.

"If I could have had that call back, Darrell (Williams) would have gotten the ball", Orgeron said. I was not aware that was how we were going to start the game. Silvers completed a 7-yard pass to Deondre Douglas on third-and-4 at the LSU 24 for a first down. With 7 seconds remaining in the half, Brandon Silvers connected with Josh Johnson on a 20-yard pass to the LSU 20.

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. LSU's Jack Gonsoulin missed a 35-yard field goal in the first half. Both teams had left the field for halftime before the field goal as time had apparently ran out.
