Smith scored on a 1-yard plunge and Štokley threw TD passes of 8 and 14 yards to Tommy Morel, the last coming with 4:22 in the game that broke a 13-13 tie. LŠU withstood ŕ last-minute Wyoming drivč that ended at the Tigers 5-yard line as time expired. LSU's defense stood tall in the second half, intercepting four passes and forcing a fumble.
