The smell of corndogs hung heavy over Vaught-Hemingway Stadium as the LSU team left the prison buses and marched onto the field Saturday night. Their fans were confidant, cocky and obnoxious as usual, dressed in their gaudy gold and purple or prison-stripe jumpsuits holding a 'possum by the tail and swinging it over their heads, and of course eating corndogs. They never expected a wounded and depleted Rebel team would give them a game much less beat their sorry ass.
The Rebels fought and clawed their way to one of the best victories I have ever seen, kicking a field goal to win as the clock ran out, It was a dagger to the heart of those swamp people who abandoned the stadium like rats leaving a sinking ship and slinking back to the swamps to lick their wounds.
REBELS SHOCK #6 LSU 27-24.
