Ed Orgeron will coach final home game with LSU vs. No. 15 Texas A&M

Ed Orgeron’s last home game as LSU’s head coach will be against No. 15 Texas A&M on Saturday.It also will be his final game overall unless the Tigers (5-6, 2-5 SEC) win and receive a bowl bid.”I don’t think it’s going to hit me until the end, and I really don’t think that way,” Orgeron said. “But I am appreciative of the time I had here — a lot of great days.”Orgeron, a Louisiana native who dreamed as a younger coach of eventually leading LSU’s program, is just two years removed from winning a national championship. But the Tigers are 10-11 in the last two seasons and the university negotiated his departure last month, effective at the end of the season.”I’m so excited about this game,” Orgeron said. “We’re going to be pumped up and we’re going to be ready to go.”Although a spotlight will be on Orgeron for his final home game, it’s also the final home game for 19 seniors who are completing their careers in a program that has seen numerous other players leave early for the NFL or enter the transfer portal.”I want to send them out the right way,” Orgeron said. “I want them to play for them. I want them to win for the Tigers. I want them to win for themselves. This is about them.”The Aggies (8-3, 4-3) are looking to improve their standing in the SEC West and their bowl destination by beating the Tigers.”We need to continue to play well, keep achieving things we’ve got to play for as far as finishing this season out and having a great year,” Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said.
