LSU and Auburn played a gross, ugly football game on Saturday night. The end of the game was full of controversy and, if you’re an LSU fan, you’re probably not happy with the outcome. First, LSU committed a penalty with fewer than one minute left. This, as most people thought, meant we were getting a 10-second run-off and the game was going to end. But as it turns out, LSU committed a penalty that doesn’t fall under the umbrella of “penalties that get 10-second run-offs,” so in the mass confusion, the officials managed to get this call right.
This gave LSU just enough time to get up to the line of scrimmage. The Tigers snapped the ball, QB Danny Etling rolled to the right and fired a strike for a touchdown in the back of the end zone. D.J. Chark got one foot inbounds and it seemed like LSU was going to walk out of Auburn with the win.Until the officials took a second look at the play.
After a review, LSU didn’t get the snap off in time, so while Etling made a great play (even though it looks like he was past the line of scrimmage when he threw the ball) and Clark caught a touchdown, it was all for naught. This was, unquestionably, the single craziest ending in all of college football this weekend.
