LSU Heartbreak, Iron Bowl Preview

With 13 seconds left in the game and a 21-17 lead, Bama thought they were coming out of Baton Rogue with an upset over #19 LSU. Senior Tyrone Prothro had already broken the Alabama single season record in receiving yards as he had 12 receptions and 214 yards in the game. John Parker Wilson was out to prove Coach Namath wrong for not making him the starter as Guillon was pulled out early after throwing two interceptions. All J.P. Wilson did in relief was throw for 302 yards and 3 TDs, including what proved to be the game winning TD to fullback Tim Castille. However it would be LSU's JaMarcus Russell and his 82 yard game winning TD pass to Dwayne Bowe that would prove to be the highlight of the night. LSU 24, ALABAMA 21

The Tide are now 7-4 with 11-0 #1 ranked Auburn up next in the Iron Bowl. Namath can redeem himself by ruining Auburn's march to a national title. However it will be tough with WR Courtney Taylor who is the favorite to win the Heisman. Below is a comparison of the key playes


Courtney Taylor WR, 73 REC 1141 YRDs 17 TDs
Kenny Irons RB, 1697 YRDs 16 TDs


Tyrone Prothro WR, 62 REC 1100 YRDs 5 TDs
Kenneth Darby RB, 1411 YRDs 17 TDs
