Last night, besides being New Years Eve, was the Chick-Fil-A Bowl (formerly The Peach Bowl) at the Georgia Dome. The LSU Tigers took on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
I think the expectation going into the game was that Tech’s triple-option offense would tear apart the LSU defense which had been nothing short of terrible for a good part of the season. However, it didn’t exactly play out that way.
LSU scored on its first drive, Tech struck back with a field-goal, then the second quarter happened. LSU outscored Tech 28-0 and the game was pretty much over.
The Dome has pretty bad lighting so its always a challenge to get the proper exposure that can stop action, but what made it even worse last night were these barriers used for advertising that were placed in front of the photo lines. We were forced an extra yard back on the sidelines as a result, which were pretty crowded.
Fortunately, during the second quarter I was able to stick around this one corner of the field where there weren’t barriers due to LSU’s utter dominance during the quarter. Overall, I think I shot pretty well though.
