Since beating Georgia 36-16, the LSU offense has struggled to score points.  In their last three games the Tiger offense scored just 43 points total.  Sure, playing number one Alabama and getting shutout doesn’t help, but LSU head coach Ed Orgeron thinks the offense has taken a step back.  “We’ve lost our identity on offense,” said Coach O.   Orgeron also suggested the Tigers might need to simplify the offense in the final two games of the season.

LSU sits at 8 and 2 and are on pace to win 10 games and certainly put themselves in a position to play in a New Year’s Day Bowl game.  “I believe we’re getting the most out of this football team.  We have two hard games to go.  To end this season strong and go to a New Year’s Six Bowl would be a big step for this football team,” said Orgeron in his weekly press conference.  

The Tigers host Rice Saturday in the final home game, and finish the regular season at Texas A&M on November 24th.  

Defensive back John Battle suffered an injury in the win over Arkansas and Coach O said, “He may be able to play.”  Coach O also ruled defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko and defensive back Christian Fulton for play against Rice and didn’t offer a time table on a possible return.  

Saturday when the Tigers host Rice, the team will recognize 18 seniors who “have poured their heart out for the Tigers,” according Orgeron.  LSU is currently ranked 7th in the country by the College Football Selection Committee.
