Ed Orgeron shares his message for Max Johnson ahead of Mississippi State game
Max Johnson has experience playing away from home, but Saturday looks to be the most hostile road environment the LSU quarterback has experienced yet.
The cowbells will be out in force at Davis Wade Stadium for Saturday’s LSU-Mississippi State game. While Johnson started at Florida last season and at UCLA this season, the MSU atmosphere is likely to be louder than the reduced-capacity Swamp crowd or the Rose Bowl that featured a strong presence of visiting Tiger fans.
On Wednesday, LSU coach Ed Orgeron shared that his message for Johnson is to take care of the football.
Ed Orgeron is asked what to tell Max Johnson going into his biggest, most hostile atmosphere yet.
“Take care of the football.”

Johnson has protected the ball well in those two road starts, with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 6-to-1. The pick came in the UCLA game.
We’ll see how he handles a full-capacity opposing stadium on Saturday.
