The final week of college football's regular season delivered in a big way by featuring several thrilling finishes in games involving ranked teams. Among them was LSU knocking off No. 15 Texas A&M 27-24 to send coach Ed Orgeron off in victorious fashion on Saturday. The Tigers jumped ahead with just 20 seconds left when quarterback Max Johnson found Jaray Jenkins for a 28-yard score.
With the win, the Tigers reached bowl eligibility at 6-6. But it won't be Orgeron coaching the team if it is selected for a bowl. Orgeron said Saturday's game was his last with the team, which means he ends his tenure with a 51-20 record over his five-and-a-half year tenure. Offensive line coach Brad Davis will be the team's interim coach as the program continues its search for Orgeron's replacement.
In other key matchups, Saturday's action decided the matchups for the Big 12 and Pac-12 title games. No. 7 Oklahoma State's win over No. 10 Oklahoma coupled with No. 8 Baylor's win over Texas Tech means the Cowboys and Bears will play for the Big 12 Championship next week in Arlington. It will be a rematch of a game that Oklahoma State won 24-14 on Oct. 2. As for the Pac-12, No. 11 Oregon enjoyed a solid bounce-back from its blowout loss at Utah last week by knocking off Oregon State 38-29.
The win for the Ducks sets up a rematch with the Utes in the Pac-12 Championship. The two sides also played in the 2019 league title game, with Oregon taking home a 37-15 victory.
