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.
