LSU coach Ed Orgeron said star running back Derrius Guice is "very questionable" for the Tigers' game vs. Syracuse on Saturday. Guice did not practice on Tuesday, Orgeron said. He left the Tigers' 37-7 loss to Mississippi State last week with what Orgeron called on Monday a "minor injury."

Just talked to Mississippi State QB Nick Fitzgerald after the Bulldogs' 37-7 win over No. 12 LSU. First thing he said was that this was not an upset. “I guess to everyone outside of our facility, we're not supposed to do that, but, honestly, if you ask anyone on this football team or anyone in the program at all, they would have told you that it wasn't going to be an upset by any means. We knew that we could win the ball game and we knew that we could score points. We knew that we were going to win it.”
Nick Fitzgerald threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more scores to help Mississippi State rout No. 12 LSU 37-7 on Saturday night.
