Looking back on LSU’s last trip to Jerryworld.

Well, since I guess some TCU fans think they’re cute, now sounds like as good of a time as any to remember the last time the two teams faced off.

And as it happens, the Tigers are headed back to Dallas for another Cowboys Kickoff matchup. But in 2013, the Tigers had a breakout performance against the Horned Frogs in the Jerradome, with a 37-27 win.

This game was the first appearance of the Jarvis and Odell show, combining for 13 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown, mostly at the expense of future first-round corner Jason Verrett. He would later try to put himself over in this game in a later draft process which, ha.

  • First year under Cam Cameron, inheriting a fifth-year senior Zach Mettenberger, and the best receiver tandem in LSU history. We had some high hopes coming into this, and while there were some fits and starts, the offense eventually came together. Although it was not to last.
  • It looked like LSU was going to break this thing open when Terrence Magee ripped off a 52-yard touchdown run in the second half, but the Frogs would rebound with a young Trevone Boykin, cutting LSU’s lead to six before the Tigers put things away.
