Prior to this, Troy never trailed the Tigers in Baton Rouge, forcing a turnover in the game's first play from scrimmage. Brossette was stripped by safety Cedarious Rookard and fellow defensive back Kris Weatherspoon recovered at the Tigers 30.

In fact, both teams had to be called out of the locker room for an extra play - the field goal - after time had apparently ended in the first half. They had 206 yards rushing. They did it by forcing four turnovers. Legassey misses a 36-yard field goal. It didn't come without controversy however. If they play a third straight national championship game come January 8, it would be incredible, but it also looks plausible. The clock ran out, but upon review, officials ruled that there was still time left. Get the app and get the game.

Troy got on the board first after halftime when Josh Anderson ran into the endzone with a 7-yard rush to push the lead to 24-7. The Trojans (4-1, 1-0 Sun Belt) led 17-0 early in the third quarter and by 24-7 midway through the fourth quarter, and held on.

Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor, rushed for a touchdown among his seven carries. Moreau's two-touchdown game was his first career multi-score outing at LSU.

The LSU offense struggled through the first half with Etling at quarterback.

"Back to the drawing board", Orgeron said.

The Tigers looked have gained the momentum after the Chunn fumble but the Trojans were not rattled.

Louisville 55, Murray State 10: Lamar Jackson had a short but productive day, throwing for 249 yards and three touchdowns, playing just more than a half and No. 17 Louisville routed Murray State. He found wide receiver Russell Gage for a 34-yard touchdown pass with 7:41 to play in the game, cutting Troy's lead to 24-14. He rushed for just 56 yards on 20 carries but contributed 51 on four receptions, in addition to his kickoff return.

Florida 38, Vanderbilt 24: Lamical Perine scored three touchdowns, Malik Davis added two and No. 21 Florida beat Vanderbilt despite losing quarterback Luke Del Rio for the season with a broken left collarbone. The Trojans also lost in 2004 on a late touchdown.

Troy put itself in ideal position in the first half because of its stellar play on third down. Etling threw for a 27-yard gain to D.J. Chark, but an interception on the next play by Troy cornerback Blace Brown put the game on ice. "We can't move the ball". Orgeron then guided the Tigers to a 6-2 mark over the final two plus months of the season, which was enough to convince the LSU brass to hire him full-time despite a lackluster career record. Troy forced two interceptions and two fumbles, turning them into 14 points.

The host Gators (3-1 overall, 3-0 in the SEC) ramped up their rushing attack to down the Commodores (3-2, 0-2). At this rate, with upcoming games at SEC East challenger Florida and No. 13 Auburn, it might be a while before the Tigers record their first conference win. Troy drove to the LSU 11 before linebacker Donnie Alexander ripped the ball away from Chunn and Michael Divinity Jr. recovered at the LSU 8. It will be the third Battle of the Belt contest, kicking off from Troy at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
