I’m not an LSU fan, but this team has it all. Burrow is a difference-maker, no doubt.

First road win in regular season. Pretty sure OSU and OU were AP top 10 when LSU won NCs in the 00s.

What about the first game against Oregon in ‘11?

“did they mean first true road game win over a top 10 program?” If this is what they are trying to say then it would be correct, but based off of what I read, I took it as first ever AP top 10 win no matter where it was played.

YES... very sloppy ‘journalism.’ But then again this is The Rant, where ~50% of the articles are called in error by the posters of this forum.

With between 123-163 receiving yards each, Justin Jefferson, Ja'Marr Chase, and Terrace Marshall Jr. were also outstanding.

Congratulations to Joe Borrow, the receivers, and the entire offense that came through for LSU tonight. The only criticism I have of the offense is LSU signed the number one running back in the country in 2019 and he never ever sniffed the field tonight. I mean if you don't develop John Emery and give him an opportunity to gain experience in big games, then how in the fricking hell is LSU supposed to beat the Alabama's and the Clemson's later on in the damn season? Give me a break.

Relax we won. It's a complicated offense in a bigtime stage. I bet Emory is the featured back in 5-6 games. But he needs to block and catch the ball in this offense.

You are absolutely spot on buddy! I was highly disappointed ! If Texas can let a 3rd string Qb carry the rock then I don’t see why O can’t have the confidence Emory are Tyrion!

Yea, I remember Etienne of Clemson playing as a true freshmen. Also, Aranada stubbornly stayed with a 4 man rush and got little pressure until he would blitz every once in a while. If you saw the Clemson game they blitzed the heck out of A & M.

Whoever downvoted this, I was the game. They booed everyone single time.

come on, now. Texas fans were booing because they thought our players were faking cramps to slow down their offense. It did seem like it was happened a whole lot, so I don't really blame their fans. I'd do the same thing if the situation was reversed.

Our defense was very underwhelming...reminiscent of the A&M game, where the opposing team seemed to score on us at will, whenever they needed to....all this from the highest paid DC in college football and what is supposed to be the most talented secondary in all of college football....and 4 LB's on butkus award watch list...hmm

They were gassed and our defensive line did not provide pressure except on a handful of plays. This was a pretty good Texas team that may win the Big 12 conference.

@rider45 They’re pretty good. But they won’t beat Oklahoma.

@Voodoo Tiger, they beat Oklahoma last year and 2015. They play them close every year. Like I said in the off-season, I expect them to split the reg season and conference champ game vs Oklahoma .

"No. 6 LSU earned its first non-conference victory over a AP Top-10 team in program history" This has to be an error, right? Wasn't Miami top 10 when we beat them last season? And it goes without saying that many bowl games we've played have featured top 10 opponents.

I dont know if the stat is correct, but i do know its talking about away games, not neutral site games IE Miami, and 2011 Oregon.

In retrospect, the 19 play drive by Texas in their 1st 2nd half possession killed this defense. I hope they get into better shape as the season goes on.

And that entire drive was unnecessary, if we didn’t try a stupid swing pass on 3rd & 1.

We allowed to many 3rd and longs to be completed.

i been saying it since last year well before the a&m game when it became unmistakable, but Aranda is overhyped and not worth his payscale. With as much talent as we have, for second (or now 3rd) year in a row our D is porous against any halfway decent team...and common sense should have told Aranda to start rotating midway through 3rd when we were just worn out from up tempo....and thats indicative of more bad coaching; when your own offense is up tempo like LSU is now, you should be ready for it, but our d obviously was not.

I'm beginning to get that feeling also.

Aranda is starting to look like Bo Pelini ... once his D was figured out there was not a 2nd version ...time will tell.

Game would have been extremely different if RB caught that pass after halftime...easy first down yac. That got Texas back into game.

Our offensive line are not graders but they did hold up for pass protection. I saw few running lanes when we ran the ball. When does Ingram return?

D wore down in 2nd half. Otherwise good game. Burrow was great. Geaux Tigas!

Burrow in the Heisman hunt. Better for him though, he’s surely catching the eye of pro scouts

Most Defense look suspect...out of shape maybe. no sign of interior pass rush that is going to be hell if they cant develop one. Burrow look fantastic and full of confidence...good game!!

Dude LSU for whatever reason stayed in base Defense most of the night and rushed 3 or 4 all night. This gave Ehrlinger far too much time to throw. It is ridiculous to not bring extra rush at times but LSU/Aranda obviously wanted to play defense and use his DBs and not blitz much. This led to what you saw.

The D-Line was being held all night with no calls until late in the 4th. SEC refs; holding LSU is not a penalty!

54/66 (82%) 749 yards (374.5 YPG) 9 TDs/1 INT - Joe Burrow through 2 games, this guy is the man. What a game.

Rob62 is correct. We stayed in a base defense for majority of the night. We rarely brought any pressure or used any stunts upfront, but when we did we had success. I think our reasoning for not bringing pressure is to keep Ehlinger in the pocket and force him to beat us with his arm not his legs, which hurts us in the stat column but obviously worked out for us in the long run!
