"We are 5-0 with two top ten wins and we feel like we've played in some of our bad games. 5-0 you can't complain, so when we really start to hit our stride and when we are at peak offense it's going to be scary," said Burrow.
LSU led 28-6 at halftime, but one again had a sluggish 3rd quarter, before finally pulling away and winning by 29 points. Up next for LSU its 22nd ranked Florida. Coach Head Ed Orgeron on the state of his team five weeks into the season.
"We haven't played a complete game yet, we have to remain hungry," said Orgeron. "We have to play our best to beat anybody, every team in the SEC in is going to be a challenge."

After falling behind 21-6 after one quarter, Tech scored 20 points in the second quarter to take a 26-21 lead and ended up winning 29-27. Jaylon Ferguson was one of the stars of the game with four sacks.
