LSU loses homecoming game to Troy, 24-21

LSU loses homecoming game to Troy, 24-21

The Tigers, on the other hand, are left with more questions than answers.

The men of Troy took it to the mighty LSU Tigers Saturday night in Baton Rouge, beating them 24-21.

In the end, the mighty men of Troy go back home almost $1 million richer with a win they won't soon forget.

"They were there for us and we got to be there for them tonight".

Seemingly every week during the early college football season, a team that shelled out hundreds of thousands of dollars to a lesser program loses what was meant to be a purchased win. It was also Troy's first win over an AP top 25 team since 2004, when the Trojans defeated No. 17 Missouri.

In addition to a 49-game nonconference winning streak, the Tigers are 35-0 all-time against Sun Belt teams.

Looking ahead to Week 6: The Tigers will play at Florida on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 3:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. CT). LSU finally got in the game with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Myles Brennan to Foster Moreau following a fumble on Troy's end.




"I would hope that I've matured as a football coach and as a person since 2008, no doubt from a play-calling standpoint where you are able to control the game from a clock standpoint", Brown said. "This was about us". Deon Butler, who played at Penn State from 2005-08, held the previous mark (179). LSU still has a ton of talented players and will always be among the best recruiting teams in the country, so these three head coaches could turn things around in Baton Rouge right away.

"At the end of the day, it was who wanted it more", LSU linebacker Devin White said.

Troy: Since losing their opener to Boise State, the Trojans have been steadily progressing. Another bowl bid, if not another season with double-digit victories, looks within reach. The game was homecoming for the Tigers, and traditionally, schools schedule homecoming opponents they can beat.

"We've just got to get better", Orgeron said. "It's not about pointing fingers". Troy would eventually stretch the lead to 24-7 on seven-yard touchdown run by Josh Anderson. Out there in the mist of the evening sat listeners surely wincing, wondering why the leaders and competitors hadn't been identified already, exhausted of the voice in the way Southeastern Conference football fans grow exhausted of a voice that lost to Florida on an unguarded Hail Mary, lost to Georgia by 41-0 and allowed Georgia Tech an unsightly 535 rushing yards. "The offensive line did a fantastic job".

Brennan steered LSU's only scoring drive in the third and whizzed an interception early in the fourth quarter before Etling returned with eight minutes remaining in the fourth as LSU trailed 24-7. Troy forced two interceptions and two fumbles, turning them into 14 points. The Tigers struggled to move the ball with star running back Derrius Guice on the sidelines with a leg injury and couldn't avoid the upset. He had gained five yards, but safety Cedarius Rookard rocked him with a hit, and he fumbled. That's big money, though plenty of coaches make bigger. After the teams left the field, officials ruled there were two seconds left when Johnson went down, leaving time for another play.

Troy extended its lead to 10-0 on the final play of the first half, when placekicker Evan Legassey connected on a 37-yard field goal.
