The Trojans improved to 4-1 with the 24-21 win over No. 25 LSU Saturday night.

Can't see the video below? On the first play from scrimmage, LSU running back Nick Brossette ran through a hole for five yards, but was met by Troy safety Cedarius Rookard, who forced a fumble. "But you know what?"

LSU's second on-side kick was also recovered by Troy.

Canada, who joined LSU in December, called roughly 90 presnap motions in LSU's season opener, a 27-0 win against BYU in New Orleans.

The festivities were quickly shut down, however, as Troy took a 10-0 lead into halftime while temporarily taking quarterback Danny Etling out of the game with a huge hit (watch here).

After an unsuccessful stint with two National Football League teams, Kelly is likely headed back to the college ranks if he moves on from his current career as an National Football League studio analyst. "But a lot of those we were more third-and-medium than third-and-long, like we've been in the past".

The host Razorbacks (2-2) built a 28-7 lead in the second quarter, then cruised home from there against the Aggies (2-3). Playing without injured star running back Derrius Guice, the Tigers outgained the Trojans 428-363 but committed four turnovers and went 0-for-8 on third downs (Troy went 10-for-18).

Quarterback Jake Fromm accounted for three of Georgia's touchdowns, rushing for two and throwing for another score.

Looking ahead to Week 6: The Tigers will play at Florida on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 3:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. CT).

Troy scored on a Jordan Chunn 1-yard run to start the third quarter, before finally letting LSU get on the board at the 4:00 mark when Myles Brennan threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Foster Moreau. I wish we had a little bit better attention to detail with what we are doing and we got a little tired. "He could have started the second half, but we made a decision to give Brennan a chance".


LSU and Orgeron will need to figure out something - anything - if the team wants any measure of success. That big (74 yard) run was a mistake by a young player.

Etling hit Russell Gage for a 34-yard touchdown pass with 7:41 to go in the game and then connected with Moreau on a 20-yard pass to pull to 24-21 with less than two minutes to go in regulation. The Trojans also lost in 2004 on a late touchdown.

There was no wooden horse needed.

Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook completed 11 of 20 passes for 197 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions.

With a chance to win, Etling chunked LSU's fourth turnover, an interception with fewer than 10 seconds remaining in the final quarter, sealing a disastrous loss.

Still later, in the elevator lobby the hollowed-out stadium, Jones' voice rang out from his post-game radio show, and a coach often lampooned for his comments said: "We're being tested right now". "We can't move the ball".

Over the course of the afternoon there was work on everything from the basic fundamentals of the game with players working at several stations on the court on free throw block outs, dribbling and pressure free throw shooting to offensive setups and defensive drills.

Ouch: LSU head coach Ed Orgeron is now 5-4 at Tiger Stadium, including games when he was at Ole Miss. Fans were stunned and the sports world is wondering what is happening at LSU.

Auburn 49, Miss. St. 10: Jarrett Stidham passed for 264 yards and two touchdowns, and Kerryon Johnson ran for three scores to lead No. 13 Auburn over No. 24 Mississippi State.
