Nope. LSU was almost a touchdown underdog. UT was #8 with only a 1 point loss to Florida.

That was one of the biggest wins in Miles' tenure IMO. If we lose that game we don't make that late season run to the Sugar Bowl with the Notre Dame beatdown and who knows how that changes things going into 2007.

Jonathan Crompton? He wasn't really good in that game at all.

Was just coming back to edit that into my previous post!! The night the Hatter was born




And I’ll never forget after JR threw that AWFUL pick to start the second half, his third of the night, Miles walked over and met him at the sideline. They had a lengthy but calm conversation and ended with Miles patting him on the helmet saying let’s go and JR just blew up after that.

Really was a great game and great win.


Damn the SEC used to be somethin else!!

One of the LSU fans next to us just left his buddy at the seat. He couldn't watch the final drive.

With all due respect, that was in game one when he faked a punt inside our own twenty like a raving madman.

ah that is probably it. I didn't google.

Ya, I shouldn't have said good. I just remember him playing since Ainge was hurt, hoping we'd roll them. And he just tossed them over the top.

Forgive me it has been 11 years.

Nope, actually Tennessee was an underdog, and the line moved a lot when Eric Ainge got hurt. Yes, it was a great win, but no LSU was not the underdog, regardless of where the teams were ranked.

TIGERS NIP VOLUNTEERS IN CLOSE GAME

No.13 LSU overcame four turnovers behind 478 yards of offence as they beat No.8 Tennessee 28-24 at Neyland Stadium on Saturday.

The Tigers barely missed covering the 4.5-point spread on the road, and the 52 points scored were OVER the posted total of 43.5.

JaMarcus Russell was 24-for-36 for 246 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions, while Early Doucet added 71 yards and a score on eight catches for the Tigers.

Jonathon Crompton took over for an injured Erik Ainge, and went 11-for-23 for 183 yards, two touchdowns, and a pick. Robert Meachem fought five passes for 121 yards and two scores for the Volunteers.

The best trip to Knoxville to watch LSU play was in Oct, 1967. Even though we lost the game, I stopped in Kingsport on the way back to my Naval station and met a young nurse. Six months later we were married. Fifty year anniversary in April 2018.

re: The last time LSU played Tennessee in Knoxville in November:


That was awesome but that wasn’t a called play. It was an option the punter always had if he saw there wasn’t a defender on the gunner and Jackson just made a heads up play to spot it and make the throw.


Still, quite a start to a wild ride with Miles

It was fitting that Russell threw an "interception" to end the game. The ball was intended for Bowe, but Doucet is a freak of nature and went up and behind him to reel it in.

I think this may be one of the most underrated games and wins during the Les Miles era. This was one heck of a game and is one of my favorite games that I’ve ever watched

The original SEC ref LSU screwjob. My dad's still pissed.

My dad, RIP, and me were and are pissed. Seeing in the following morning's Tennessee newspaper (?) of a sideline shot that clearly showed the ball crossing the plane.

Oh well
