Getting this created early so I don't forget or get too busy
LSU - 45
USC - 38
Had an epic double overtime game with Hokie Effect last night that had tons of huge plays. USC got off to a quick start with a 14-0 lead on two big touchdown runs from Carlisle and King. LSU rallied back a bit and were down just 17-10 at the half.
The second half started with a huge Campbell run from LSU to tie it up followed by an interception from USC. After LSU gave the ball back with an interception at the 1 yard line, USC made a quarterback change that worked out instantly. After a big 3rd down scramble, Blankenship connected on a 58 yard touchdown to finish a 99 yard drive and go up 24-17 going into the 4th quarter.
Nothing changed for the first part of the 4th quarter, but then Davis broke off a 45 yard touchdown run for LSU to tie it up. LSU then forced a punt and got a 49 yard touchdown pass to Sims with 2 minutes left to give LSU their first lead of the game at 31-24. This game wasn't over, though. Blankenship put together a nice drive with some big passes and ended it with a 5 yard run to make it 31-30 with 19 seconds left. USC decided to go for OT instead of the 2 pt. conversion, so this game continued.
USC got the ball first and scored quickly with a 15 yard touchdown pass to McCoy. LSU came right back and eventually got in the endzone on 3rd and goal from the 1 on a run by Davis. Davis then scored again on a 10 yard run to start the second OT to put LSU up 45-38. When a USC pass fell incomplete on 4th down, this game was finally over.
Great game, Hokie. It definitely could've swung either way at the end there.
