NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Fans at Betsy’s Pancake House reacted with excitement to LSU’s marathon win over the Florida Gators.

The Tigers topped the Gators 5-3 in a 14-inning thriller that set the record as the longest SEC tournament game in history.

“It was a good start, but I wish them luck beyond that,” said Leland Roussell.

“I hope they didn't spend everything yesterday because they're going to need it. This is a long tournament,” said Joel Moore. “But they're liable to go the distance.”

When asked if he thought the Rally Possum had anything to do with the win, no one denied it.
