Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports
Per LSUSports.net: HOUSTON – Kansas State quarterback Skylar Thompson threw for 259 yards and three touchdowns Tuesday night, and running back Deuce Vaughn rushed for 146 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the Wildcats to a 42-20 win over LSU in the TaxAct Texas Bowl at NRG Stadium.

The Tigers completed the season with a 6-7 record, while Kansas State improved to 8-5 with the victory.

LSU had only 38 scholarship players available for the game, and wide receiver Jontre Kirklin was the Tigers’ starting quarterback, playing the position for the first time since 2016 when he was a senior at Lutcher (La.) High School.

GJ Jontre, GJ to the Tigers who showed up. Also BJ and Mason will be a team on DLine next year, wow. Lack of experienced LBs and DBs showed last night.

When is the last time you won a national championship? At LSU, we fly national title flags at Tiger Stadium, you make commemorative cups of overtime games. Don’t ever compare Texas 8&4 to us. You’re not even in the same league.

So proud of the kids that played in this game. Seriously…….A high percentage of schools would have backed out given that set of circumstances.

Jimbo Fisher needs to send KSU the name of the vendor they used for their victory cup over LSU so KSU can put them in their trophy case.
