The streak is over!

September 20, 2003

(Baton Rouge, Louisiana-AP) -- Matt Mauck shook off the Georgia defense to fire a 34-yard pass to Skyler Green with 1:22 left, giving Number Eleven LSU a 17 to 10 victory over the Number Seven Bulldogs today.

LSU's win snapped the Bulldog's nine-game road winning streak. Georgia (3-1, 1-1) had not lost on an opponent's field since Mark Richt became coach in 2001. LSU (4-0, 1-0) appeared to be in control late in the fourth quarter. The Tigers put together a long drive, going to Georgia's 18.

But Mauck fumbled on a keeper, turning the ball over. David Greene hit Tyson Browning with a screen pass and Browning, after getting some key blocks, ran 93 yards to tie it at ten with 4:25 remaining. Devery Henderson returned the kickoff 48 yards to set up the Tigers.

Six plays later Mauck hit Green with for the game-winner. Corey Webster intercepted Greene's pass with 32 seconds left to ensure LSU's victory.
