SEC Championship Game - Georgia v LSU

The Georgia Dome has been pretty good to the Tigers over the years, so with the Falcons playing the final game in it today, LSU decided to remember it. Some highlights:

In 1996, Aaron Adams blocked a 52-yard field goal attempt by Clemson with just over a minute left as LSU held on for a 10-7 win in the Peach Bowl.

In 2000 Peach Bowl, Rohan Davey came off the bench to throw three second-half TD’s to beat Georgia Tech.

In 2001 SEC Championship Game, Matt Mauck ran for two TD’s and led the Tigers to the school’s first SEC title since 1988, while denying Tennessee a shot at the National Championship.

In 2003 SEC Championship Game, Justin Vincent ran for 201 yards and scored twice, vaulting the Tigers into the BCS Championship Game and the school’s first national title since 1958.

In 2005, LSU outgained Miami 468-153 en route to its largest margin of victory in a bowl game, 40-3, in the Peach Bowl

In 2007, Jonathan Zenon returned an interception for a go-ahead touchdown, as LSU defeated Tennessee, 21-14, and returned to the BCS National Championship.

In 2008, LSU scored five first-half touchdowns including three by Charles Scott in a 38-3 victory over No. 14 Georgia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

In 2010, Russell Shepard scored twice as the Tigers scored all 30 of its points in the first half and held off No. 18 North Carolina in the season opener, 30-24.

In 2011 SEC Championship game, Tyrann Mathieu and the Tigers defense sparked LSU to a convincing 42-10 victory over Georgia, as LSU improved to 13-0.
