BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Boos rained down from the Tiger Stadium stands, even as quarterback Joe Burrow kneeled to close out No. 5 LSU's latest convincing victory over a ranked opponent.
It was an unusual scene spawned by an unfortunate play that could carry considerable implications going forward.
Michael Divinity Jr.'s interception set up Nick Brossette's short touchdown run, Cole Tracy kicked four field goals, and LSU beat No. 22 Mississippi State 19-3 on Saturday night. But the Death Valley crowd left angry after LSU's top linebacker, Devin White, was ejected for targeting in the fourth quarter, meaning he will not be eligible to play in the first half of the Tigers' upcoming showdown with unbeaten and top-ranked Alabama.
