The Cardinals (2-1 overall, 2-1 SEC) built up their lead in the second half as Lucas Roe, who ran for 132 yards, ran in two scores and Scaglione ran in another touchdown.

LO also had two long TD runs called back due to penalties.

“We’re battling injuries and we’re shuffling in some new guys,” LO head coach Aaron Hungerholt said.

The Athletics (0-3 overall, 0-3 SEC) got on the board when Andy Davidson, who ran for 90 yards, broke off a long touchdown run.

Olson was pleased with the way his team moved the ball on the ground in the loss.

“We’re committed to pounding the ball and we took a step in the right direction tonight,” he said.
