Record-Breaking UNC Touchdown Cuts LSU Lead To 30-17

After a scoreless third quarter between LSU and UNC, at about the three-hour mark of this game, an LSU touchdown gets called back, and Brent Musberger and Kirk Herbstreit drop all pretense of even appearing to care what's happening on the field. Eyelids across America begin to droop. UNC fans (whom, it should be noted, have stayed to watch the slow death of their squad in admirable droves), trickle up the stairs and out of the Georgia Dome.

And that's about when T.J. Yates rears back in the shadow of his own goalpost and launches a pass at Jheranie Boyd, who catches it around the 50 and rockets to a 97-yard touchdwon. It is the longest play from scrimmage in Carolina history. LSU leads, 30-17, but eight minutes remain, and we're wondering: Where has that play been all night?
