LSU punt returns for TD history

Rank them all time for excitement/dazzle; was ODB J's the most? C Jones vs Moo St.?
1) ODB J 2012 vs OM (almost same track as 3)!
2) C Jones 2009 @ Miss. St.
3) Billy Cannon 1959 vs OM
4) S Green 2003 vs UF
5) K Faulk 1996 vs UH
What u got?

Probably the Billy Cannon one because of the number of tackles broken. The Mathieu almost-TD return vs UGA would've been the best. That was probably the slowest and most exciting return I've ever seen by an LSU player.

Nothing will never and can never top billy cannons Halloween run. It's just one of those timeless moments in sports. In ten years we will have forgotten about beckhams return (great though it was, not attempting to take anything away from the kid) but Cannons run on Halloween night will forever live in LSU lore.

Cannon in '59 has been replayed at least once every year for over 50 years.

As a pre-teen, even I could recite the play-by-play from memory.

The others were awesome, but c'mon.

Although it wasn't a tackle-breaking PR, Patrick Peterson against West Virginia will stay with many people for a while.

Heisman pose, baby.

Was pretty awesome. Me and a few friends got falsely accused of throwing "an unapproved item" in the stadium, that game. What a fricking joke the stadium "police" are

Tommy Casanova's punt returns against Ole Miss in 1970 were something special.

What about Trindon Holliday?

2009 87 yards for TD vs. Arky

2008 92 yards for TD vs. N. Texas

He also had 2 kickoff returns for TD, one for 98 yards in '07 vs. Ole Miss and in '06 a 92 yarder against Arkansas

TM7 vs Arkansas last year was a game changer.
