The Saints lost their third straight yesterday as they fell three points short of finishing their trip to London with a win over Minnesota. The game went back and forth in a wild fourth quarter that saw the Vikings come out on top 28-25. Saints kicker Will Lutz kicked a 60-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter, but missed a 61-yard attempt to tie the game on the final play as the ball hit the upright and then the cross bar…
Cut 16 (14) “…go in.”
The Saints offense had another slow start, turned it over twice and the team committed ten penalties. The defense also couldn’t contain former LSU Tiger Justin Jefferson, who had 10 catches for 147 yards and a rushing TD. New Orleans is now 1-and-3 and will return home to face Seattle.

It was far from a perfect performance on the Plains but the LSU Tigers are 2-0 in the SEC after coming back from a 17-0 deficit to beat the Auburn Tigers 21-17. Coach Brian Kelly says it was a gritty victory…
Cut 19 (19) “…did that tonight.”
LSU forced four turnovers, three of them in the fourth quarter. The Tigers are now ranked 25th in the AP poll and will host 8th ranked Tennessee on Saturday.

The Ragin Cajuns rallied from a 10-point fourth quarter deficit only to lose on a last second field goal to South Alabama 20-17. ULM still can’t beat Arkansas State as the Warhawks fell to the Red Wolves 45-28. Northwestern State rallied from 12 down to beat Nicholls 36-33 to improve to 2-0 in the Southland. The Colonels remain winless.
