Per LSUSports.net: BATON ROUGE -- LSU overcame its largest deficit in an SEC game since 1979, rallying from a 20-0 hole with 20 unanswered points in the final 15:32 to knock off No. 10-ranked Auburn, 27-23, on a scorching Saturday afternoon in Tiger Stadium.

LSU redshirt freshman placekicker Connor Culp made a 42-yard field goal with 2:36 remaining in the game that gave the Tigers a 24-23 advantage and complete the comeback. Culp added another 36-yarder with 0:38 left to play that forced Auburn to play for a touchdown on its final desparate drive.

Give credit to Etling. If yall would stop hating on him and saying how bad he is you'd realize that he does enough to get the job done and he is a LEADER. Never gives up and keeps so many plays alive. When have we had a QB that can do that?? Yeah exactly. All the way back to Flynn probably...

Just wanted to recognize Connor Culp for his clutch kicks late in the game. I (along with several of you) have said he kicks everything right down the middle, and Saturday was no exception. He’s now 4-5 (80%) with his only miss a 47 yarder against Chattanooga. (Probably nerves) I think Coach O needs to admit that we Do have a kicker, and his name is Connor Culp!

Gage was sooooo money. As was White and Chark. Awesome win. Hope it gets some recruits to look at Up closer

BTW, Coach O is now 11-4 overall as HC, 6-3 in SEC games. I think he’s doing a great job with this young team, and Canada and Aranda are also proving their worth. I never saw any of our coaches with a look of panic on their faces yesterday. The players are buying in! It’s all starting to come together! Tremendous!

Great job by the coaches and players. They found their confidence. We need the positive feeling to translate into recruiting and that will make this program great again.

We have some really talented athletes. DJ Chark was amazing. Enjoy the win guys! We have a very young team, the youngest in the country which means we will be inconsistent this year. But we should get better and better as time goes by. Exciting time to watch LSU football.

Wow! What a game! I think it’s safe to say that our young Tigers have found their identity: Resilient! Spotted a top 10 team 20 points, and as Coach O would say, never blinked! Second leg of the triple crown complete!

Our kids are growing up. Our coaches made the adjustments to give our team a chance to win. Coaches made good in game decisions. All that equates to a big win for our Tigers! One team One heartbeat & 2 polarized fan bases. Gotta love it.

I agree. Aranda has made good adjustments in game pretty much since he’s been here. (With 2 exceptions this year.) And Canada is following suit as well. Most importantly, Coach O is letting them do it, something Les would never do. I don’t think Chavis or Cameron would know what to do, anyhow!

With current roster, 8 wins and bowl game win. I believe they will have top 18 class.

Why? Because I won't let the O haters off the hook! You celebrate your way pal and I'll celebrate my way!
Reply48 months
No because you equate O haters with Libs. You clearly are dumb as shite but at least you understand that this team deserves your praise.

After getting blown out by Moo State, the Syracuse game and the loss to Troy, people were not being unreasonable in their "hate" for Orgeron. It was warranted.

It's the worst hire in LSU history. But as long as Joe is there we're going the wrong way. The only thing that can make this one better would be to have him and order on resign

A well deserved win and much needed moral boost for this young team. I saw the makings of a few leaders on the field today... No doubt we still have rough times ahead but I think these trials are just sharpening the teeth of these young men. I see a lot of potential ahead of us.
