The only way LSU could've scored on this play was via magic deflection, so that's what happened

Just like Les Miles drew it up.

Not much has gone right for LSU early against Arkansas, as they fell into a 21-0 hole. So when you score a touchdown like this, you take it:

The Brandon Harris pass dinged off of WR Travis Dural, past three Arkansas defenders, and right to WR Malachi Dupre who hauled in the Tigers' first and thus far only touchdown. It's magic. There's no way a ball could've gotten through all those defenders between Harris and Dupre. But this deflection worked perfectly.

Les Miles is a sorcerer, and we're sure he'll begin calling ping-pong passes like this in future.
