I was on an airplane when LSU and Arkansas were finishing their epic battle earlier today, so I didn’t get to see the finish in real time. But man oh man have I been drinking in the replays since landing. What a game!
In case you missed it, the Tigers were trailing the Hogs late in the fourth quarter when Zack Mettenberger, the starting quarterback, was injured and had to leave the game. LSU’s freshman backup QB, Anthony Jennings, entered the game with 99 yards between him and a touchdown. What happened next will go down in LSU lore. Watch the highlights below to see it for yourself. Unbelievable!
Congratulations to Arkansas for putting on such a performance in Death Valley. The Hogs played a lot better against LSU than A&M did last week. It’s a tough game to come up short, but the Hogs were impressive nonetheless.
Mega congrats to LSU for a great game. Geaux, Tigers!
Much like other great rivalries, it doesn’t matter what their national rankings are – both teams come ready to play. We can call this one payback for the “Miracle on Markham” (2002 in LittleRock).
