"This is a ... if they lose this game, they're at 3-3 and ... they're playing hard, but 3-3 with what they have left," Herbstreit said during Saturday's show. "All the noise around the program. Coach O had to yell at a fan who called into the show ... kind of messy right now. They need to win today."

Questions surround Orgeron following last week's crushing 24-19 home loss to Auburn, only the Tigers' second setback in 43 games during his tenure after leading at halftime. Orgeron is 6-6 against SEC competition since winning the 2019 national championship and 8-7 overall, tough-to-stomach numbers at one of the nation's elite programs.

During Saturday’s edition of Big Noon Kickoff, college football insider Bruce Feldman dished the latest on Orgeron’s hot seat.

Ed Orgeron is not even two years removed from leading LSU to a national title but his seat is in fact warm and it got a lot warmer with the home loss last week to Auburn," Feldman said. "Now Orgeron is 48-16 at LSU but he is working for an AD in Scott Woodward who is not the one who hired him and Woodward likes to make splashy hires. Remember, Woodward when he was at Washington hired Chris Petersen and when he was at A&M he got Jimbo Fisher to leave FSU and go to College Station. This is a big uphill climb for Orgeron now.

"They go to 5-0 Kentucky today, then they play Florida, at Ole Miss, at Alabama and then Arkansas, that’s five top 20 teams. It’s kind of optimistic to think they may go 3-2 over that stretch with the way they’ve been playing. But, remember this, in 2017 Orgeron was in a very similar situation. His team was 3-2, he was facing a lot of heat, people doubted him, and that’s when his team started to go on a roll.”

At times, LSU looked disorganized offensively against Auburn, forcing early timeouts and did not seem to manage the final quarter during Auburn's comeback.

And now? The Tigers taken on an unbeaten SEC opponent ranked inside the top 20.

LSU is an underdog against the Wildcats and Orgeron knows his team will need to get back to pounding the football with success to win. The Tigers are next-to-last in rushing this season within the SEC.
