Texas-LSU was as intense of a game as expected. Two teams ranked in the top 10 with bragging rights on the line, with the Tigers getting the best of the Longhorns on Saturday night.
Leading up to the game, there was a lot of trash talking going on. The two schools went back and forth in regards to who was the real ‘DBU’. LSU fans obtained Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger’s phone number and bombarded him with texts and calls.
But that was pretty much it right? Wrong.
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron informed reporters on Monday afternoon that Texas’ visiting locker rooms had no air conditioning. That’s one heck of a way to try and affect an opponent.
Apparently it wasn’t just employed for LSU.
“I called Louisiana Tech, and they told us about it,” Orgeron said. “So we did some things in the dressing room that were better. It wasn’t great, but it was better. At least we had air in there. They didn’t have air.”
On Monday evening, Texas responded to the claim.

So Orgeron claims there was no air conditioning, which is backed up by Louisiana Tech. Texas claims there is air conditioning in the visiting locker room.
The next Texas home game is against Oklahoma State on Sep. 21. Something tells me the Cowboys will have a nice, air conditioned locker room waiting for them.
