BATON ROUGE, LA: The Tigers took to Death Valley Saturday afternoon for their first scrimmage of fall practice. Coach Orgeron said they mainly worked on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd downs as well as red zone. That was the main emphasis of the day.
The defense had a great day putting a lot of pressure on the quarterbacks and Garrett Nussmeier has a great performance..
“It was an outstanding day,” Ed Orgeron said. “There was a lot of hard work and preparation getting ready for today. I thought our coaches did a tremendous job of getting our guys ready.”
Sophomore quarterback Max Johnson completed 11-of-19 passes for 127 yards and a touchdown, while true freshman Garrett Nussmeier connected on 11-of-17 passes for 225 yards and three scores.
LSU will take Sunday off from practice and then return to the field on Monday with a walk-through in the morning followed by practice in the afternoon.
