LSU suspends lineman for drilling a celebrating Wisconsin player after play was over

A game-clinching interception led to a serious ruckus at Lambeau Field.

LSU quarterback Brandon Harris threw an interception to Wisconsin's D'Cota Dixon in the last minute of their game on Saturday, sealing a 16-14 upset victory for the Badgers.

Once Dixon started to celebrate, LSU offensive tackle Josh Boutte might not have realized the play was over. Hopefully, at least, that's what happened.

Boutte was tossed from the game, which had been effectively decided.

The result:

It took the Tigers an awfully long while to produce any offense at all. Wisconsin had a 13-0 lead in the third quarter, and LSU's first points didn't come until an interception-returned touchdown from Tre'Davious White broke the ice.

LSU forced a fumble and then pulled ahead on a strike from Brandon Harris to Travin Dural, and that got the see-saw going. Wisconsin's Rafael Gaglianone – one of the sport's best dancing kickers – put Wisconsin back ahead with a 47-yard field goal just inside the four-minute-remaining mark. That set up the finish.

College GameDay broadcasted from outside Lambeau Field, and Wisconsin fans really didn't hold back. The game didn't feature the caliber of offense typical of a Packers game in that venue, but the atmosphere looked excellent, and at least the game turned out to be a tight one.
