If you’re home tomorrow morning from work or school for Christmas Eve and won’t have any traveling to do, you are in for a treat because ESPN Classic is replaying the 2004 Sugar Bowl between No. 2 LSU and the No. 1 ranked Oklahoma Sooners at 10:00 a.m. CT.
This game of course brought LSU their second national championship and first since the days of Paul Dietzel and future Heisman winner Billy Cannon in 1958.
ESPN Classic is channel 614 on DirecTV, for the channel in your area if you don’t have DirecTV you’ll have to check your guide, but if you aren’t able to watch the game live, I hope you can set your DVR and watch the game and enjoy the trip down memory lane.
In case you need a refresher in the game it was the No. 1 ranked defense vs. the No. 1 ranked offense of the Sooners led by Heisman winning quarterback Jason White who completed 13 passes for 102 yards and was sacked seven times and intercepted twice.
One of the interceptions went to Marcus Spears who returned it 20-yards for the touchdown that would serve as the difference in the 21-14 outcome.
Freshman running back Justin Vincent was the game’s MVP after he ran for 117 yards and a 16-yard touchdown.
I think it won’t be long until LSU is winning another national championship, especially with the recruiting class coming in this coming year. When do you think LSU wins their next national championship in football?
