No. 20 LSU beat No. 13 Louisville 29-9 in front of an announced crowd of 46,063 the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl in Orlando on Saturday.
LSU stopped Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Lamar Jackson (pictured above), holding him to just 33 rushing yards on 26 carries, and just 153 passing yards on a 10-of-27 day. So effective were LSU that Jackson only managed one big pass play all game.
LSU Running back Derrius Guice (pictured above) was the MVP of the game as he finished with 26 carries for 138 yards. He had a rushing touchdown and a receiving one.
Quarterback Danny Etling was 16-of-29 passing for 217 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw one interception.
The LSU defense held Louisville’s offense to 220 total yards and no touchdowns. Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson was sacked eight times.
Defensive end Arden Key set a new school record for sacks in a season at 12. The previous record was 11. Key’s record-setting sack was on a safety.
LSU Coach Ed Orgeron said his team’s preparation, engineered by defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, was crucial to shutting down Jackson. LSU, which had not used many blitz packages during the regular season, came at Louisville with several different looks.
“I thought it was very brilliant on Dave’s part to mix it up,” Oregeron said. “We did it all game. He was one step ahead.”
“We got beat by a good football team,” Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said.
