Ed Orgeron Says Texas Had No Air Conditioning In Visiting Locker Room

College Picks The Undertaker to Appear During ESPN Show on Saturday

LSU moved up to No. 4 in the AP poll after beating Texas in Austin on Saturday night.

Tigers coach Ed Orgeron confirmed Monday that the Longhorns' guest locker room didn't have air conditioning, but added he was tipped off by people at Louisiana Tech, which was Texas' Week 1 opponent.

College Gameday announced the news via social media, and will likely have the WWE superstar on during the final segment of the show, which consists of the team making picks for the day's games.

In a matchup between two Top 10 teams, the University of Texas Longhorns showed toughness but were ultimately defeated 45-38 by a scorching offense from Louisiana State University. The senior caught 12 passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns for the Longhorns.

Those drives haunted them for the remainder of the game, nearly as much as the LSU receivers.

The Longhorns surrendered 471 yards passing and four touchdowns in a 48-35 loss in which Texas fought back from an early deficit but forced only one punt in the second half.

Joe Burrow was almost ideal in the second half against Texas.

Samuel Eto’o retires from football
Samuel Eto'o - a three-time Champions League victor among other honours - last played for Qatari outfit Qatar SC in 2018-19. On the worldwide stage he won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2000 and 2002 and a gold medal at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

Note: This was even more significant because it was the first drive following Texas' back-to-back failed goal-to-go situations.

The showdown between the Tigers and Longhorns features two high-profile quarterbacks in the Longhorns' Sam Ehlinger and the Tigers' Joe Burrow.

When asked after the game if he thought the issues LSU faced with cramping were in good faith.

Facing him across the line of scrimmage is an LSU defense dotted with players projected as future National Football League first-round draft picks. The teams have squared off in the Cotton Bowl twice since, with LSU capturing a 13-0 victory to cap the 1962 season and Texas taking a 35-20 victory at the end of the 2003 campaign. I don't think that caused as much as going out there and having to play 93 plays on defense.

Texas led in first downs, rushing yards and takeaways, but LSU had Burrow.

Jefferson caught three touchdowns.
