Tigers tie Irish in first quarter of Music City Bowl
The LSU Tiger football team woke from its early game slumber and rallied to tie the Music City Bowl match-up against Notre Dame at 7-7 just before the end of the first quarter.
LSU fell behind when newly inserted Irish quarterback Malik Zaire raced his team down the field 66 yards for the opening score using 15 plays and nearly eight minutes of game clock.
The Irish beat up the Tiger defense for three third down conversions as well as a fourth and one before Zaire connected with receiver Will Fuller for the 12 yard touchdown toss.
A second 4th and 1 attempt by the Irish was stuffed by LSU defensive end Tashawn Bowers and the LSU offense responded.
A combination of trick plays and power running plays wrapped up with a Leonard Fournette 8 yard touchdown run to tie the game at 7-7 just as time was winding down in the 1st.
