Orgeron, coaches meet with AD amid LSU's recent struggles

Orgeron, coaches meet with AD amid LSU's recent struggles”

The University of Florida will pay tribute during Saturday's football game to Gainesville, Fla., native and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Tom Petty, who died earlier this week at age 66. It capped six weeks of angst stemming from the game's postponement and relocation from Gainesville to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, because of Hurricane Matthew. "It was a good week".

Orgeron will update the team's injuries and may say who will and will not play in Gainesville. "I believe in myself, I believe in my staff, I believe in my team", he added. Danny blocks out the noise very well. All he does is come to work. The Tigers have played 20 true freshmen, tops in the country.

Defensively, the return of Lawrence means LSU's top defensive lineman is back on the field and with that comes perhaps the teams' best leader on that side of the ball.

Despite LSU's struggles this season - the aforementioned Troy loss and a 37-7 loss to Mississippi State - McElwain said the Gators aren't going to get comfortable heading into the game. Franks started the first three games of the season, but was benched in two of those. Devin White (13 tackles) and Christian LaCouture (two sacks) were among the defensive standouts last week for LSU, which has allowed an average of 29 points in its last three games. Florida also leads the league in opponent third-down conversion percentage, limiting the opposition to just 28.1 percent (16-of-57). Running back Malik Davis has been a revelation in place of the suspended Jordan Scarlett with 43 carries for 714 yards and two touchdowns. Fakes would continue to be a theme through this rivalry, as in 2011 LSU punter Brad Wing scored a touchdown on a fake punt run, only for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty to overturn it.

OR said that in order for the Tigers to have success against Florida, they are going to have to protect the quarterback and have success on third downs.
