With 3:59 left in No. 6 LSU’s matchup with No. 9 Texas in Austin on Saturday, September 7, 2019, the Tigers took over at their own 25 with a 37-31 lead. While LSU’s offense was rolling – behind the magnificent play of senior quarterback Joe Burrow, the Tigers had tallied 500 yards and scored four touchdowns already on the night – Texas’ attack was firing on all cylinders, too. Behind the passing of junior quarterback Sam Ehlinger, the Longhorns had scored 24 second half points to trim the Tiger lead from 13 points to just six.
