LSU credits aggressiveness in upset win against Georgia

LSU came into Saturday’s game against 2nd ranked Georgia with an impressive resume against top 25 teams, having beaten number 8 Miami and number 7 Auburn earlier in the season. Now the Tigers can add number 2 Georgia to that list.

The previously undefeated Bulldogs came into Death Valley leading the SEC in total defense, but the Tigers put up 475 yards of offense in the 36-16 triumph.

LSU is attributing an aggressive game plan to the end result, having gone 4 for 4 on fourth down conversions following a one-possession loss to 22nd ranked Florida that was the root cause of Coach O’s nightmares and his week seven bravado. “All week we talked about being aggressive. I was a little ticked at myself for not going for it against Florida down there, fourth and half an inch. So we didn’t do a good job of game management then so I said hey, I’m going to go for it.”

(“Did that keep you up at night this week?”) “Nah.  We were going for it. We were going for it as hard as we can, we were throwing out the kitchen sink, man. Everybody we had, and we did it.”

As a result of the upset win, LSU has jumped eight spots all the way up to number 5 in this week’s AP Top 25 poll.

That huge win for the Tigers is gonna cost ‘em in the form of a $100,000 fine. The SEC slapped the penalty on LSU for fans storming the field following the win which was technically a violation of the league’s access to competition area policy.

This is the school’s second offense since the rule’s inception back in 2004 and a third strike would yield a $250,000 fine for the purple and gold.
