    LSU Tigers and the Washington Huskies met in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, and it was a fight to the finish for both teams. LSU needed to win to keep from a losing record, while new head coach at Washington, Colton Bice was looking for back to back victories to help carry over into next season. From the get go, both teams threw countless interceptions, 7 total (4 LSU - 3 WSH) and you could see the coaches were irritated the whole game.

    Both coaches said in halftime interviews they would look to pull the starter if they felt it got out of hand, but it seemed with both teams neck in neck, they needed to keep their starters in. Washington came out and got on the board their first drive after intercepting LSU on their 3rd play, it was a drop in the endzone by Brown that led to the first points of the game. LSU pursued them on the following drive with 7 points and never looked back from there, that was until the 4th quarter. LSU continued success with a 21 yard field goal at the end of the first half to take the game to halftime 10-3. We got a word with coach Bice at the half and here's a piece of what he had to say, "We overlooked this team, and we're paying for it. Look for us to be more stable in the 2nd half and we're going to come back and win this game."

    That's just what this team did, LSU's last points were those at the end of the half, but Washington didn't tie the game up until finally all their ground and pound paid off with a 11 yard rushing touchdown by Brown with 6:17 left in the fourth quarter. Washington then held the Tigers on their next drive and killed enough time off the clock to set up on the 20 yard line with 4 minutes remaining. It was strategy and luck that helped coach Bice win his first bowl game, the time played on their side and both passing and rushing attacks were successful in the last drive of the game, that set up a 38 yard field goal to win the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

    Look forward to seeing these Huskies come out firing hot next year, and look for them to chase the National Championship & PAC-12 Championship!
