It looked like a typo when you saw it on the screen.
After Louisiana Tech was threatening to score early in the fourth quarter, they suffered an 87-yard loss that put them squarely out of field goal range to say the least. O
n Tuesday, defensive back C.J. Morgan admitted that the eye-popping 3rd-and-93 that ensued as a result of the play was no accident. Speaking with ESPN, we get a peek behind the curtain of the devious mind that orchestrated one of the most unorthodox goal-line stands in recent memory.
“Here’s my thought process,” Morgan said, giggling the entire time. “I have one perfect chance to scoop it up, and if I don’t get it, I’m gonna kick it, I’m going to keep kicking it.”
This play resulted in a loss of almost 90 yards.

The game was already well in hand, and while Morgan probably should have just jumped on the ball and ended the madness there, everyone around the sports world is sure happy he didn’t.
Expect the Bulldogs to play far more conservatively in their next game. They welcome conference rival LSU into Davis Wade Stadium and aren’t expected to win in a laugher they way they did against LA Tech.
If they see a loose ball this Saturday, they’ll jump on it, not kick it.
