BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU’s 2017 homecoming was spoiled by another feisty Troy team.
Nine years after the Trojans came to Baton Rouge and nearly upset the Tigers at home, the 2017 version got the job — this time with a 24-21 victory over No. 25-ranked LSU.
The loss snapped LSU’s 49-game home non-conference winning streak and marked the Tigers’ first-ever loss to a team from the Sun Belt Conference. LSU last lost a non-conference game back in 2000, which was Nick Saban’s first year as the team’s head coach.
First-year LSU coach Ed Orgeron addressed the media after the loss and hit on the team’s performance, Myles Brennan getting time under center and struggles on third down.
Here’s what he had to say:
