BATON ROUGE (KATC) — For such  an impressive start for LSU, something is missing, the pass rush.

Ed Orgeron has been critical all season of his team’s ability to sack the quarterback. This season the team is averaging just north of two sack-per-game. A full sack less than the team did a season ago when the Tigers ranked 14th in the nation in sacks.

Saturday Ed Orgeron tinkered with rotations, but he said this week it’s not getting the quarterback that’s been the problem, it’s bring the quarterback down that seems to evade them.

“I think it comes down to making — we had several times chances to make some sacks and we missed them,” he said. “We missed some tackles for loss in the back field…. We tried to create negative, more negative plays by blitzing and slanting, we’re just not getting it done right now.”

LSU hosts second ranked Georgia.
