On Sunday, the latest AP Top 25 was released and LSU went from number 5 to number 2 in the country after the Tigers defeated Florida 42-28 Saturday at Tiger Stadium in the matchup of Top 10 teams. Alabama remained at number 1, while LSU jumped at Clemson, which is now at number 3, after the last week of college football action. Ed Orgeron's program also jumped over Ohio State.
The Tigers now face the Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss on Saturday at 2:30 PM. CT before Auburn, another Top 25 team, is hosted on October 26.
In the Amway Coaches Poll, LSU advanced three places to No. 3 from No. 6, using Georgia losing home to South Carolina, leaving No. 3 in the poll.
LSU comes from one of the classic games at Tiger Stadium, making it one of the most difficult places to place in all college football. Orgeron emphasized the audience and the atmosphere that the fans brought to the table when the two teams started at 7 p.m. CT until the clock hit 0:00 and LSU had won.
"It was there," Orgeron told reporters after the game. "The crowd, when we made that stop and started getting busy on the quarterback, our crowd came to life. Our boys cheered on the sidelines. I told (Joe Burrow) that these are the great quarterbacks. Let's go down There and scoring. What a great throw along the sidelines. And what a game it had. Yes & # 39; Marr Chase. Again a fantastic attack. "
The next time the LSU audience is present to influence such a game, it is two weeks from now when Auburn comes to Baton Rouge to try and get rid of the Tigers. Orgeron knows there are things to work on, but he referred to the team that insisted on their process of handling the victory over the Gators and what will eventually happen before Mississippi State and Auburn.
"We are 6-0 and we will enjoy tonight," Orgeron said Saturday night in his press conference after the game. "Tell the truth Monday, there will be many things on the film that they won't like. It's good if you win and you still need to get better. This team is hungry. This team is fresh. I think we as healthy as we have been. Hopefully we will get Terrace Marshall back soon. It was good to see Glen Logan and Rashard Lawrence again. It made a difference in our soccer team. "
