ETA: Without words. Kentucky props. LSU…
you suck you got caught speeding. I just knew this would be a loss….sooo LSU.
Karma pays back.
Kentucky 43, LSU 37
Five years ago, LSU traveled to the Kentucky Wildcat stadium ranked #14 in the country and feeling pretty confident. However, coming off a loss to Auburn the week before, LSU needed a win to stay in the SEC race. Kentucky played inspired football while LSU was flat. In the last minutes of the game, Kentucky broke a 27-27 tie with a late field goal to take the lead, 30-27. The Wildcat faithful could feel the win only moments away. LSU gets the ball back deep in their own territory. QB Marcus Randall connects on a long pass to Michael Clayton for a first down around the 25 yard line. With :02 on the clock, Kentucky players douse their coach with Gatorade and fans were ready to storm the field to tear down the goalposts. There’s nothing left but the proverbial “Hail Mary”….the play comes in…Dash Right 93 Berlin. You know, the one that never worked in practice….
OH. MY. GOD. Devry Henderson SCORES!!!! Are you kidding me? Kentucky fans, unaware that the catch is made, start to storm the field and the LSU jubilation at the end of the field suddenly provides the realization that they have actually LOST this game.
Fast forward five years….LSU comes back to Kentucky for the first time since the legendary “miracle” rated #1 and fresh off an historic win over a TOUGH Florida team. Ripe for the pickin’? Maybe. All logic says LSU by 24, but this is Kentucky in Kentucky.
Just in case Les “Fear the Hat” Miles can’t provide enough enthusiasm for the Tigers to remain pumped, “Old Coach” Lou Holtz has some words of encouragement:
Lou’s Pep Talk
LSU should take care of business and this should be a sound win that solidifies their #1 spot above the college football polls. Let’s hope it doesn’t come down to the last play of the game, but if it does:
