LSU coach Ed Orgeron

LSU was 10-3 in 2018 including 5-3 in the SEC. The Tigers played in one of the most bizarre games in college football history, a 74-72 loss to Texas A&M in seven overtime periods. The Tigers rebounded from that to defeat Central Florida in the Fiesta Bowl. Ed Orgeron is 25-9 in three seasons in Baton Rouge, 15-7 in SEC games.
