Texas AD responds to LSU accusations about air conditioning not working

Texas AD responds to LSU accusations about air conditioning not working

During LSU's 45-38 victory, numerous Tigers players got cramps throughout the game, which promoted Texas fans to boo them since they thought LSU was trying to slow down the playing tempo. Both units got picked apart by Burrow and Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger.

LSU fans are doing everything they can to make sure he is not on his game with some insane off-the-field antics.

The Longhorns come in here at 1-1 on the year.

Joe Burrow was almost ideal in the second half against Texas. LSU never looked back after converting on a 28-second drive that gave them a 13-point halftime lead. Those guys and Collin Johnson (three catches for 49 yards) normalized LSU's top DBs Grant Delpit and Kristian Fulton. And the Tigers unveiled a new up-tempo offense last week that saw quarterback Joe Burrow tie a school record with five touchdown passes - in the first half alone. Whether Texas was going to be able to convert on big plays was a big question mark heading into this week.

The LSU defense held Texas to just 172 yards to cap the 1962 season.

Their first year sans Jarrett Stidham began on a high note with the 55-3 drubbing of Georgia Southern last week, and with Texas as their latest opponent, things should be interesting. He ran eight more times for an additional 34 yards, while Keontay Ingram gained 78 yards on 11 rushes and one score. That's why we went for it on the goal line.

"The letters LSU never came out of anybody's mouth the entire nine months since we left New Orleans", Herman said.

Before the game, Texas and LSU players did a good bit of jawing about which was the real "DBU" (Defensive Back University). Iowa State was ranked No. 21 in the preseason poll, then dropped out of the rankings after beating Northern Iowa in the season opener last week.

According to the latest oddsmakers, LSU is favored on the road in this game, as the Longhorns are getting odds of -6.5 points against Texas.
