After a 7 overtime loss to the Aggies in 2018, the Tigers finally got their revenge, and proved to everyone that they are a complete team going into the postseason.
The LSU offense showed fans nothing new as they dominated the game putting up 50 points on the board with a total of 553 yards.
While the offensive performance came as no surprise, the Tigers proved that their defense was a force to be reckoned with.
The defense had 3 interceptions, 6 sacks, and held the Texas A&M offense to just 169 yards and a single touchdown.
Texas A&M normally averages over 400 yards per game, but Safety Jacoby Stevens feels accomplished that the Tiger defense cut that number down.
“I mean it feels good when a team averages as much yards as they do, and you hold them to less of that, it always feels good because you dominate the game. You take over the game and you make somebody do something they don’t want to do.”
After being moved down to No. 2 in the College Football Playoff rankings, Head Coach Ed Orgeron did not let it phase this team, but instead, allowed them to rise to the occasion.
“You know that doesn’t matter; it really doesn’t. We block out the noise. We want to play. We wanted to be 12-0, and we’re taking it one game at a time. We control our destiny.”
The 12-0 record sends the Tigers to Atlanta for the SEC Championship for the first time since 2011 as they will take on the Georgia Bulldogs.
