AUSTIN, Texas — Saturday’s battle at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium between No. 9 Texas and sixth-ranked LSU could have been a heavyweight prizefight based on all the haymakers landed by the two teams and the times the Longhorns, especially, got up after being knocked down.
In the end, it was the Tigers who landed the most, and most meaningful punches, as quarterback Joe Burrow threw for 471 yards and four touchdowns, three of them to Justin Jefferson, and LSU outlasted the Longhorns, 45-38, before a raucous crowd of 98,763.
