LSU head coach Ed Orgeron has received plenty of criticism for the way his team has looked dating back to the start of last season when Mike Leach and Mississippi State torched the Tigers as the Bulldogs claimed a 44-34 win in Baton Rouge.
But Orgeron was able to get a bit of redemption today as the Tigers held on to beat the Bulldogs 28-25 in Starkville. The win itself wasn't that great, but Orgeron and LSU needed a win. That's what the Tigers got.
