LSU dominant in victory over Louisville in Citrus Bowl

-

The Louisville Cardinals weren’t able to get off the ground in their bowl game today. Even with Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson as their field general, the Cardinals looked overmatched and disorganized by a superior LSU team.

After early season turmoil, which included the firing of beloved head coach Les Miles, the Tigers ended their season with a flourish and took steps to reclaim their national dominance. Ed Orgeron will be responsible for that resurgence, and it appears he is fit to do the job.

Louisville, who was led all season by the explosive play by Lamar Jackson, was unable to get any rhythm going all game. Jackson was able to reel off a few exciting runs, but for the most part he was kept totally in check. On 26 carries, he managed only 33 yards, with his longest run being 15 yards.

In fact, he went backwards just as much as he went forward. The Tigers did a good job keeping him uneasy in the pocket all game. That included a sack of Jackson for a safety and forcing an intentional grounding penalty.

The Cardinals offense, their engine all season long, was unable to muster a visit to the redzone in their season finale.

For Louisiana State, who was playing without its star at running back Leonard Fournette, you would never have guessed. Derris Guice, a Sophomore who got the nod in Fournette’s absence, ran for 138 yards on 26 carries, breaking a 70 yard on one play and scoring a touchdown.

Both teams changed their fortunes as the season went by.

LSU improved, Louisville took a nosedive.
