LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron has been chasing this milestone since the win over the Florida Gators: elusive win No. 50. As a head coach Orgeron has compiled a 65-49 record. Not exactly a world-beater of a record, but he is over the .500 mark.

As a member of the LSU Tigers, Orgeron is 49-20. A win over the ULM Warhawks will put him 30 games over .500 since becoming the head coach in 2016. His win over Florida allowed Orgeron to break the tie he had with Nick Saban.

With win No. 50 on the table, he can become the fourth head coach to win 50 games for the LSU Tigers. Bernie Moore was the first to do it.
