(WVUE) -

Ed Orgeron's first road game as the permanent head coach really couldn't have unfolded any worse. The Tigers' got absolutely crushed on the road 37-7. Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald accounted for four touchdowns on the night through ground and air.

"We never thought this was coming. Put it on me," said LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron. "Obviously we're very disappointed in our play tonight. Give the credit to Mississippi State, especially on the offensive and defensive lines. They had 285 yards rushing on our defense. We could not stop the option, we could not stop the inside run, too many deep balls. Very disappointed in the nine penalties. We're going to have to get better, more disciplined."

LSU quarterback Danny Etling finished a pedestrian 13-of -29 passing for a 137 yards. Marrero native Darrel Williams registered the only touchdown of the night for the Tigers.

LSU plays next week at home against Syracuse. Their next road contest is at Florida on October 7th.

"We have to bounce back, and I know we will," said Orgeron.
