Nine years after losing a 28-point second-half lead in Baton Rouge, Troy finished the job Saturday night against LSU, earning a 24-21 over the 25th-ranked Tigers at Tiger Stadium.
The loss is LSU's first non-conference loss in Tiger Stadium since falling 13-10 to UAB on September 23, 2000, Nick Saban's first season in Baton Rouge.
The Trojans not only won on the football field, but on social media.
That's to say nothing of the 21 yards the Trojans scored on their two successful fourth down conversions, including a 1-yard touchdown run by running back Jordan Chunn.
Some of LSU's worst plays of the night came on the high-pressure down. Troy had a chance to completely close the door on LSU when it recovered an LSU fumble deep inside its own territory, but the Trojans immediately gave the ball back with a fumble of their own inside the 10-yard line, and LSU notched its first touchdown of the game two plays later.

WHAT WENT WRONG:Troy - as they did in 2004 and 2008 - took a lead against the Tigers early and added to it with a freakish situation that led to a field goal at the end of the first half to take a 10-0 lead into break. The kick capped an 11-play 60-yard drive for the Trojans. While Etling was able to run off the field, Orgeron told the LSU radio show that Brennan would take the snaps for LSU in the second half.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: Defensive end Christian LaCouture earned this one. Troy would eventually stretch the lead to 24-7 on seven-yard touchdown run by Josh Anderson. He did return with 5:26 remaining in the game and led a touchdown drive, but the Tigers' comeback fell short as Etling was intercepted with five seconds remaining.
LSU has some problems to address and questions to answer. Silvers 7-yard pass to Deondre Douglas on third-and-4 keeps the drive going at the LSU 17.
