LSU’s Orgeron Named Dodd Trophy National Coach of the Week

LSU’s Ed Orgeron has been named The Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week after leading the Tigers to a 45-38 win over ninth-ranked Texas on Saturday in Austin, the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation and the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl announced on Monday.

The Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week award honors a football coach who led his team to a significant victory during the previous week, while also embodying the award’s three pillars of scholarship, leadership and integrity.

The win over Texas marked the first time in LSU history that the Tigers beat a Top 10 non-conference opponent in a true road contest. It’s also the fifth Top 10 win for Orgeron, who improved to 27-9 as LSU’s head coach.
