LSU’s 45-21 win over the Aggies on Saturday night made it seven in a row over Texas A&M. The Tigers end the regular season with an overall record of 9-3, winning six of their final seven games. Orgeron has a chance to garner a ten win season for the first time since 2012. (With Les Miles)
It was an emotional night for 20 seniors. Danny Etling and Derrius Guice (a junior), walked the slowest they ever have down Victory Hill, taking in what would be their last Tiger Walk at LSU. Although Guice is a junior, it seems very likely that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft.
“He hasn’t told me he’s leaving yet,” said Orgeron postgame.
Senior quarterback Danny Etling played one of his best games ever, throwing for a season-high 347 yards and three touchdowns. The Tiger offense notched another season-high of 605 total yards, the first 600+ yard game since last year against Texas A&M (622).
Orgeron says he does expect LSU’s first year offensive coordinator Matt Canada to explore and pursue head coaching jobs during the offseason.
LSU’s bowl positioning at this point is still up in the air. Although it seems unlikely, Orgeron and his squad could end up in a New Years Six bowl if the chips fall into place. However, the Outback, Citrus and Taxslayer Bowls all sound more likely considering 3 SEC teams remain in the current top 10.
