LSU Pulls it Out..Auburn Goes Limp

Just when it looked like it was certain that Auburn was going to end up with the win, LSU's freshman quarterback, Jarrett Lee, woke up. Coach Les Miles made a big mistake putting Lee in at the end of the first half just when Andrew Hatch was playing well and the mistake cost LSU.

LSU was down 14-3 at halftime! In the second half, LSU came out strong but before long Hatch was knocked out of the game with a mild concussion. Even the announcers groaned at the idea that Lee would be finishing out this game. What a difference halftime made! Lee came out and completed his first pass... and then his second... before long, LSU had scored a touchdown. The game was back and forth but LSU managed to pull out a 26-21 win in a hostile Auburn stadium. Considering Lee started out 0-5 passing and 0 yards of offense in the first half, he ended up with 11-22 passing and 182 yards in the 2nd half - that's an amazing turnaround. It was definitely a team effort as three different Tigers scored touchdowns but I'd give the game ball to Charles Scott who rushed for 132 yards against a stellar Auburn defense.

it was an exciting game to listen to and the way it turned out made it even better

Yes it was - but I damn near had a heart attack several times during the game!
