In Tuesday’s Fiesta Bowl, LSU was thin on defense, especially in the secondary. The Tigers entered the game missing three defensive backs, including Kelvin Joseph, who was suspended for a violation of team rules. He did not make the trip to Arizona.
After the game, Joseph took to social media to apologize to the “Tigers family.”
I want to apologize to the whole tigers family that I let down in this critical situation I want to let y’all know it won’t happen again 2019 all gas no breaks tough times don’t last forever tough people do 💪🐯!!!

At one point, LSU was missing five defensive backs due to the ejections of CB Terrence Alexander and S Grant Delpit. Despite the absences on defense, LSU defeated No. 8 UCF 40-32.
