Baton Rouge in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
January 1, 1965
— LSU 13, Syracuse 10 —
Doug Moreau hauled in a 57-yard touchdown pass from Billy Ezell and then kicked a 28-yard field goal with just under four minutes to go to lead LSU to a 13-10 comeback win over Syracuse. Despite LSU's late-game offensive explosion, it was the Tigers defense that came up big, holding the powerful Syracuse offense scoreless for the final three quarters. LSU's only points in the first half came on a safety when defensive tackle George Rice dumped Syracuse All-America Floyd Little for a loss in the endzone. Down 10-2, LSU tied the contest when Moreau, the MVP of the game, hauled in the 57-yard touchdown pass from Ezell, who then tied the game at 10-10 on a swing pass to Joe LaBruzzo for the two-point conversion. Moreau's fourth-quarter field goal was the difference, as the Tigers won a Sugar Bowl contest for the second time in six tries. LSU finished the year 8-2-1.
