LSU was defeated 44-34 by Mississippi State in their home opener in Tiger Stadium. LSU came off their win in the National Championship on a high note, but lost players to a pretty large draft class.
Myles Brennan is now starting at quarterback after waiting three years. Brennan said that the offense was off to a slow start and that had a pretty big affect on them.
On a high note on the defensive side, newly named no. 7 Jacoby Steven made some solid plays out the door. On the defensive side there were some interceptions and recovered fumbles.
The offensive side for LSU got going in the second half but still could not keep up with Mississippi State.
Coach Orgeron said that he places the blame on himself and is ready to do what he can for the team. Brennan wants to keep the team in high spirits to keep progressing as well.
