BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two days after watching his team put
together the greatest comeback in school history, LSU coach Les
Miles was still somewhat stunned by it all.
The Tigers founded themselves trailing Troy 31-3 in the third
quarter but scored a touchdown late in the third and 30 points in
the fourth for a 40-31 victory.
Miles noted at the LSU media luncheon Monday that the near upset
came a week after the disappointing and emotional overtime loss to
top-ranked Alabama. He said LSU coaches did a poor job of telling
players how good a team Troy really is.
Next up for LSU is Mississippi. Saturday's game will be a battle
for second place in the Southeastern Conference Western Division.
