LSU head coach Ed Orgeron leads his team onto the field against BYU in the first half of an NCAA college football game in New Orleans, Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017.
Louisiana native Ed Orgeron was able to celebrate a largely stress-free victory in his maiden season opener as LSU's head coach, but also saw his offense squander scoring chances that could have made the result even more lopsided.
The good news for LSU was that a defense with four true freshmen in the starting lineup — and without injured top pass rusher Arden Key — held BYU to fewer than 100 yards.
Operating an overhauled offensive scheme under new coordinator Matt Canada, LSU piled up enormous statistical advantages but stalled four times inside the BYU 20 — twice coming away with no points, once because of a missed field goal and once because of a failed run on fourth-and-goal from the 1.
