LSU returns to Kyle Field this week for the first time since the 2018 loss against Texas A&M, which was a seven-overtime affair.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron recalled that game on Wednesday on the SEC coaches media teleconference.

“It was tough, it was tough to see the guys fight for a victory and not come away with it,” Orgeron said.

LSU has struggled on defense for much of the season, but there have been improvements recently. Orgeron explained where he’s seeing improvements.

“Our pass rush is a lot better, especially in 4-man rush,” Orgeron said. “Most of our sacks come from 4-man rush.”

With rain in the forecast, Orgeron said LSU would work with wet balls, and practice outside unless there is lightning.

About QB Myles Brennan, Orgeron said he is about 60 percent, and getting a little better. The coach and medical staff is not ready to operate on him yet, but Brennan is definitely not playing this week. Brennan has been out since the Missouri game with a significant lower body injury.

Orgeron added that CB Eli Ricks will play on Saturday after he was ejected for a targeting call last week against Arkansas.

LSU and Texas A&M will meet at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday at Kyle Field.
