    It is going to be forever memorable. No doubting that. But where do you rank it?

    17-14 vs #15 Ole Miss in 03
    winner wins the West, the death of Eli

    24-21 vs #12 Florida in 04
    improbable winning TD drive, scoring with only 27 seconds left by Marcus Randall, his signature moment

    16-13 in OT vs #4 Bama in 05
    the beginning of the end for Shula, Bowe's TD catch in OT wins it, LSU down 10-0 at the half

    28-24 vs #8 Tenneessee in 06
    crazy last minute drive by Russell, converting a 4th down along the way and scored with only 9 seconds left

    31-26 vs #5 Arkansas in 06
    Holliday's KR for a TD, ruining Razorbacks' chance for a NC, we earn a BCS Bowl Berth

    41-34 vs #17 Alabama in 07
    LSU beats Saban, Doucet 32 yard TD on 4th and 4, Chad Jones pummeling of John Wilson Parker

    31-26 vs #10 Auburn in 08
    Jarrett Lee's remarkable game winning drive

    20-13 vs #18 Georgia in 09
    Scott's 33 yd winning TD run with only 46 seconds left to play

    33-29 vs #14 Florida in 10
    The bounce and the fade

    Bama 05, i think they were 9-0 going into that game, and it was really fun watching the look on the fans faces. Especially those girls with the houndstooth caps on who looked like they were going to cry. And if i am not mistaken, that was the game that Laron Landry DESTROYED Brodie Croyle. But I think the Florida game can be ranked up there with the others in the last decade.

    I like this one too. I believe it was a #5 LSU vs #3 Bama matchup too, so the stakes were high. It was also the game that the two LSU male fans kissed :rolleye33:

    I think that was the home game in 06.

    Good list for the 2000's. One I might add would be the 2000 Ole Miss game. Neither team was ranked going into the game, but Ole Miss was pretty good and had beaten us three straight. We won 20-9 to ensure a bowl bid.

    Had to do some research, you are making me doubt myself.

    in the 2006 Alabama-LSU game it was John Parker Wilson that Landry destroyed which made the YouTube rounds as well.

    Good list, Izzy. Here's my order:

    1. 17-14 vs #15 Ole Miss in 03 - Closest we came to losing our shot at the NC that season.

    2. 41-34 vs #17 Alabama in 07 - The first meet-up with Saban, and kept us in the NC picture.

    3. 28-24 vs #8 Tenneessee in 06 - Coming out party for what was probably LSU's best offense ever.

    5. 33-29 vs #14 Florida in 10 - Impact still in progress, so could go higher or lower by year's end, but many of the "idiot coach" demons are exorcised by this win.

    6. 16-13 in OT vs #4 Bama in 05 - awesome comeback, and I believe Bama was undefeated at the time, so we took them out of the NC hunt.

    7. 31-26 vs #5 Arkansas in 06 - May have cost the pigs a title shot.

    8. 24-21 vs #12 Florida in 04 - Joe Addai's coming out party. Also vengeance for the only loss of the '03 season.

    9a. 31-26 vs #10 Auburn in 08 - early season false hope to what was eventually a disappointing season

    9b. 20-13 vs #18 Georgia in 09 - see 9a

    '05 Bama is my favorite. Russell to Bowe FTW.

    Also, given that my favorite LSU player is Joe Addai, I have to say the comeback vs. Florida in '04. Russell started and threw 3 first half INTs but Randall came in and threw the game-winner to Addai in the right flats.

    It was a week after the debacle in Athens, so everyone thought we'd get clownstomped.
