"Good win for our football team," said Orgeron. "We had 164 yards rushing, we held them to 16, difference in the ball game. Tough week for our football team, I want to commend our team, it didn't always go our way the whole game, there are some parts that obviously we can get better, we can look at that, but I'm proud of the win. We are 8-2 now, our focus was to come here and win the football game and that's what we did."
Nick Brosette rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown, while Clyde Edwards-Helaire had 56 yards and a score. 
Quarterback Joe Burrow was 15 of 21 for 195 yards and a touchdown, which went to Justin Jefferson. Jefferson finished with six catches for 117 yards. 
Grant Delpit led the defense with six tackles and a fumble recovery. Kary Vincent had an interception.
