Nearly two hours after LSU dumped Gatorade on their coach in premature celebration, the Texas A&M Aggies prevailed, 74-72. The two signal callers were more than worth talking about, as they combined for 13 touchdowns (six for Burrow, seven for Mond) when the game finally wrapped up.
"I lost track of overtimes.it is the craziest game ever", Fisher said looking a bit dazed. However, it was determined that Mond was down before he threw the ball, meaning the play was reversed.
But the interception would be reviewed, and ultimately, overturned, leaving Texas A&M with fourth-and-18 to convert with the game on the line. A few seconds later, Mond converted a 4th-and-18 pass to Quartney Davis to keep the Aggies alive.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire took a pitch from Burrow and launched an 11-yard TD pass to Tory Carter to put the Tigers on top in the fifth overtime, but the 2-point conversion failed.
Both teams kicked field goals in the fourth overtime to send it to the fifth. Both teams managed to do just enough to keep the overtime run going, but LSU almost found themselves in trouble in the first one.
Afterward, the madness bled into the postgame handshakes when an unidentified, credentialed member from the Texas A&M sideline got into a fight with LSU's director of player personnel and former Tigers running back Kevin Faulk.
LSU's final possession resulted in a 10-yard touchdown run by quarterback Joe Burrow, giving the Tigers a 72-66 lead in the seventh overtime.
