The LSU Tigers looked on the verge of a knockout entering the final five minutes of the third quarter, but couldn't stop the Clemson Tigers on its three fourth quarter drives, including a late- drive that resulted in a game-ending 37-yard field goal as time expired that gave 14th-ranked Clemson a 25-24 decision over 8th-ranked LSU Monday night at the Georgia Dome.
The game winner, a 37-yard field goal by Chandler Catanzaro as the game clock ran out, was atonement for Catanzaro who earlier had an extra point blocked that put Clemson behind the eight ball in scoring until the final field goal.
The late heroics by the ACC team put a damper on a night when freshman LSU running back Jeremy Hill scored two touchdowns for LSU, including a 57-yard run on the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter that gave him the school single season freshman rushing record of 12 touchdowns, topping the mark her tied earlier in the first quarter of 11 set originally by Dalton Hillard in 1982.
