Saturday, November 24, 2018, a historic football game took place at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas between the Texas A&M Aggies and the LSU Tigers. The game went to a record tying 8 overtimes and broke the previous scoring record held by Syracuse and Pittsburgh with a combined total points of 136 with a whopping 146 points.

At the end of the first quarter the score was 7-7.  LSU’s Cole Tracy made his first of a few huge field goals, a 47-yarder at the halftime buzzer, and LSU scored midway through the third quarter to tie. A&M took the lead again, but Devin White forced a Trayveon Williams fumble early in the fourth quarter, and Michael Divinity took it 58 yards to tie again.

After an A&M three-and-out, Lanard Fournette ripped off a 46-yard run that set up a go ahead 14-yard score from Joe Burrow to Foster Moreau with 6:41 left.

A&M drove to the LSU 37 in response, but a Kellen Mond scramble on fourth down came up a couple of yards short, and LSU got the ball back with 2:32 left.LSU needed a first down to stall the game, but LSU managed only five yards in three rushes. A&M took over at its 22 with 1:29 left and no timeouts. This had been an interesting, back-and-forth game before all of the craziness started again.

Heres where the game got whack… Mond threw the game-clinching interception, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron got a Gatorade bath, and … the play was called back because Mond’s knee ever so briefly touched the ground when he was gathering the snap therfor Texas A&M would get another shot to score with just :01 seconds left in the game. Sure enough they score to push an overtime which happened to be just as hectic as the last few minutes of regulation. LSU would start out with the ball and manage to kick a field goal to put them up 34-31. Texas A&M would do the same thing tying the game at 34 all.
In the second overtime, Kellon Mond of A&M had a 3 yard td run to make the score 41-34 A&m. But LSU would answer right back with a touchdown of their own tying the game.

This would continue to happen for 4 more overtimes where both teams would match the opposing teams score. Finally in the seventh overtime LSU started out with the ball and immediately scored, but didn convert on the extra point. Texas A&M scored and did convert on the extra point making them the winner of this crazy game. The final score was 74-72. LSU fell to 9 wins and 3 losses on the year while the Aggies improved to 8 wins and 4 losses on the year.
