Fan Sound Off: Ed Orgeron staves off talk about his job with upset win over Auburn

LSU Football-Ed Orgeron-Auburn-upset-fan sound off

LSU fell behind early, but the Tigers clawed their way back to upset No. 10 Auburn, 27-23, during Week 7 action in Baton Rouge, La.

Ed Orgeron’s squad overcame a 20-0 deficit thanks to a defense that stepped up and blanked Auburn in the second half.

Danny Etling threw for 206 yards and a 14-yard touchdown to Russell Gage. Stephen Sullivan added a 1-yard rushing score for the Tigers (5-2, 2-1 SEC) as LSU scored 13 fourth-quarter points to earn the victory.

Orgeron can breathe a sigh of relief. His program has now defeated Florida in the Swamp and knocked off a top-10 ranked Auburn in consecutive contests.
