Young LSU defenders expected to step up against UCF at Fiesta Bowl

LSU coach Ed Orgeron said the team that plays against UCF in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1 won’t be the same team that played in the regular season, and that statement holds especially true for the Tigers’ defense.

In addition to losing cornerbacks Greedy Williams to an early exit designed to protect his draft status and Kristian Fulton to a season-ending injury, LSU will also be without linebacker Jacob Phillips due to a targeting ejection in the fourth overtime of the Tigers’ 74-72, seven-overtime loss to Texas A&M in the regular-season finale.
