Now, one day removed on Sunday, TSD is taking a look back at what went right for LSU in the ballgame and what areas didn't.
- LSU recording five sacks versus a division opponent is a big deal and great sign for the future under first-year defensive coordinator and spirited line coach Ed Orgeron. Those two have the Tigers playing aggressive on the defensive end, getting after the quarterback. Sophomore defensive tackle Davon Godchaux claimed two of the five sacks. He's off to a superb start in 2015.
- Fournette wasn't the only LSU player getting his on the ground. Darrel Williams and freshman Derrius Guice chipped in a combined 96 of the Tigers' 411 rushing yards from the backfield. Equally as impressive? Quarterback Brandon Harris picked up 66 yards rushing, including two red-zone keepers for scores.
- Finally, the whole depth problem along the defensive line might not be as bad as many first anticipated. Or at least there was encouragement given Saturday as third-year tackle Frank Herron had a key sack, strip and recover deep in Auburn territory in the second half.
- Senior tight end Dillon Gordon reportedly suffered an Achilles' injury of some sort, missing most of Saturday afternoon's game after going out early. Time will tell how serious the injury is, but without Gordon the Tigers would take a hit in run-blocking.
- Starting senior linebacker Deion Jones was ejected for targeting in the final 30 minutes, meaning he'll also miss the first half of LSU's game early next Saturday at Syracuse. Minus Jones, look for junior Duke Riley to get more time at linebacker.
