Gus Duggerton and the LSU Tigers are heading to the 2020 BCS National Championship Game! After a 27-20 OT thriller, Coach Duggs is set to appear in his fourth consecutive title appearance.
Defense was the headliner for both squads tonight, as we really didn't see many offensive highlights overall. What we did witness out of the gate was Heisman frontrunner Cam Sandwich dancing his way into the end zone to score the first touchdown of the night.
But early into the second quarter, we got some devastating news regarding Mr. Sandwich...
We wish Cam a speedy recovery and can only hope that the three week window is enough time for him to get well enough for Sunday night.

With the RB threat taken away, Gus Duggerton had to resort back to the play calling we all know too well. Welcome back, AIR DUGGS!
As we fast forward to the fourth quarter, LSU held onto a slim, 14-13 lead. Since Cam Bone was sidelined, it was the next man up mentality for the backfield. Enter Cam Bone.
But as we saw above, the 2PC failed for LSU, giving Kentucky a chance to potentially tie things up in a two minute drill. Unfortunately for Coach Duggs, that is exactly what the Wildcats did.
With 20 seconds to work with in a game tied at 20, Coach Duggs did all he could to set up K PFT Commenter for a potential game-winning field goal. The Tigers got into Mr. 35's range, but then, the unthinkable happened:
At this point, Coach Duggs had no choice but to forget what just happened. It was off to overtime in the Georgia Dome with a chance to go to the Natty on the line. LSU was not rattled in the top half of the extra period, scoring a TD easily.
It was now up to the defense to potentially win the game.
What an electric finish to this one, and the perfect way to set the stage for Sunday night's season finale and Coach Duggs' final game of his unreal career.
Tigers. Mountaineers. 24 minutes to finish off the Duggs legacy. Can he win his third title and ride off into the sunset with another crystal ball? We will see you at 9:07 PM ET on Sunday night.
