Teary-eyed Ed Orgeron reflects on LSU's win over Alabama
LSU coach Ed Orgeron let the emotions flow following a monumental win at Alabama, 46-41, as the Tigers snapped their eight-game losing streak in the series.
“It’s a great game to be in, a great rivalry,” Orgeron told CBS Sports’ Jamie Erdahl. “I am so happy for the state of Louisiana, and all the LSU fans and our football team and our coaching staff. They worked very hard for this victory. It’s a much-deserved victory for our football team and our great state of Louisiana, and our great university in LSU.”
Orgeron was asked about QB Joe Burrow’s legacy.
“He’s one of the best we’ve had here,” Orgeron said. “But we still got four games left and we’re going down the road. We’re going to try to win every game and we’re going to bring a championship back to Louisiana.”
RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire had a tough late run that Orgeron said showed the Tigers heart.
“You know, Clyde is 6-4, 270,” Orgeron said of the back, who is listed at 5-8, 209. “He has a great mindset about himself. He has the heart of a champion. I am so proud of Clyde.”
Asked where the team could go from here, Orgeron said, “we’ll see, we’ve got to go beat Ole Miss next week, take it one game at a time.”
