LSU defense dominates Louisville in Citrus Bowl win
Since the ball was kicked off, it was all LSU on Saturday.
LSU and Dave Aranda’s defense shut down Lamar Jackson and the high powered Louisville offensive attack. The Heisman winner scored an unbelievable fifty-one total touchdowns this season, and not one of them came today. The Tigers forced a key safety late in the second quarter, and put constant pressure on Jackson throughout the game. Coach O got his first officially win as permanent head coach.
The defense wasn’t all that shined, however, Derrius Guice ran for 135 yards and 2 touchdowns. With Fournette gone, Guice proved why Tiger fans should be excited for next year. Guice told the media that the “coaches did a great job preparing.” LSU receivers Malachi Dupre and D.J. Chark also had an impressive showing with multiple meaningful catches on third downs.
LSU ends the season 8-4, with much momentum going into the new year.
