    Byrd makes catch with 2 seconds left and clock clicks down to 1.

    Somewhere an old Ole Miss fan is saying: "Now you run a second off the clock!"

    Trey,

    I remember that game because I was actually there!

    I lived in Jackson, MS at that time though I was a student at LSU. For years after that game there was a sign as you entered LA from MISS that said,

    "You are now entering Louisiana. Please set your clock back 1 second."

    I loved it. :eek:ldskule:

    Down 16-10 with four seconds left in the game when Jones threw an incomplete pass. At the end of the play, fans looked at the clock which surprisingly showed one second remaining. LSU used the last second of the game for a touchdown pass from Bert Jones to Brad Davis. According to Ole Miss lore, a sign was put up at the Louisiana-Mississippi border reading "You are now entering Louisiana. Set your clocks back one second."
