With LSU’s offense sputtering, it needed someone to step up and make a big play. 

Enter punt returner Tre’Davious White.

In the third quarter, the junior received a punt and sprinted right up the middle past the entire Syracuse coverage team en route to a 69-yard touchdown. The score gave LSU a 17-3 advantage. The Tigers went on to win the game by a score of 34-24. 

It was the first LSU punt return for a touchdown in an opponent’s stadium since 2009.
