LSU suffers shocking last-second loss

(WVUE) -

It appeared for a moment that Danny Etling threw the winning touchdown pass as time expired. D.J. Chark received the pass, got his foot in, and bedlam ensued. LSU wins 19-18 at Auburn. Not so fast my friend.

Referees reviewed the touchdown, and ruled the clock expired before the ball was snapped. LSU loses 18-13, and fall to 2-2 on the season. The Tigers haven't scored in the fourth quarter all season.

"We knew that the referee was not going to blow a whistle. He wasn't going to say ok, get ready. He was going to raise a hand, and drop it, and the clock was going to start. So we knew that. We were trying to get it together, set it up as fast we could, and we thought we were pretty close," said LSU head coach Les Miles.

“I thought we won the game. I thought the game was over,” said quarterback Danny Etling.

It's just another wild ending that didn't go Les Miles way in the big picture. The big question going forward for LSU, is this loss another nail in the Miles' coffin.
