LSU Season Opener: O-line struggles, injuries on defense plague Tigers in 24-23 loss to Florida State

WWL's Brooke Kirchhofer and Doug Mouton break down the heartbreaking LSU loss to Florida State in their season opener.

NEW ORLEANS — LSU was plagued by inconsistent o-line play and defensive injuries in their 24-23 loss to Florida State in their season opener.

Quarterback Jayden Daniels struggled in the first half but the passing attack came alive in the fourth quarter. 

A 99-yard touchdown drive almost brought the game to overtime after the Tigers were seemingly dead in the water.

But a blocked extra point attempt ended up sealing a brutal loss for the Tigers.

Still, LSU's almost-comeback should provide some optimism for fans - if coach Brian Kelly can build on that foundation.
