The Cholly Mac Era at LSU ended in style as the Tigers sent out their head coach of 18 years Charles McClendon with a 34-10 whipping of Wake Forest in the Tangerine Bowl- in Orlando. McClendon capped his career as the winningest coach in school history with 137 victories and was later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. In the final game with McClendon on the sidelines, the Tigers scored touchdowns the first two times they had the ball and built a 24-0 lead, never looking back in the win over the Demon Deacons. Quarterback David Woodley, who was named the MVP of the game, rushed for two TDs and threw for another as the Tigers racked up 510 total yards, while limiting Wake Forest to only 263 yards. LSU closed out the McClendon Era with a 7-5 mark.
