Is there a such thing as: TOO many MEN??… Just ask the Vols

Posted: October 4, 2010 by NattieLiz in LSU Tigers, NCAA Football

So this saturday was a great weekend in College Football. We had a lot of Conference match ups that changed the look of our AP top 25. Most of the games were great to watch, but there was one game this past weekend that stuck out as the soap opera story of  Week 5: LSU vs. Tennessee. 

The game came down to the last 28 seconds, with the Vols leading 14- 10.  The Tigers had made tons of mistakes all game leaving fans in almost a state of disgust by the 4th quarter. 

With seconds to go in the game, LSU on 3rd and goal from the 1 yard line, the clock nearing to zero a sloppy snap seemed to end the game with Tennessee players streaming onto the field in jubilation. But WAIT!, as the celebration was halted when officials ruled the Vols had 13 defensive players on the field when the ball was snapped. Suddenly, LSU players were quickly trying to regroup: fetching the helmets they’d thrown on the ground in frustration and running back to the line.  LSU coach Les Miles who had already tossed his headset aside, decided to call one last play.  He called the right one, as Stevan Ridley bullied his way into the end zone from a yard out. The reaction of both teams seemed to be the opposite ends of disbelief: Did we just WIN? vs. Did WE just LOSE?  The fans who were already starting to file out were suddenly  rejoicing over a now 5-0 season. Once again, college football surprises us!
