Remembering "The Blue Grass Miracle"

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT TEN:   WAFB's JACQUES DOUCET TAKES A LOOK AT THE HISTORIC PLAY AND TALKS TO FORMER LSU PLAYERS WHO WERE PART OF THE "MIRACLE".

This Friday marks the 10-year anniversary of one of the greatest moments in the history of college football - The "Bluegrass Miracle".

The "miracle" came in the form of LSU's 74-yard game-winning touchdown pass, with no time left on the clock, as they took on the Kentucky Wildcats on November 9, 2002.

On the final play of the game, Tigers quarterback Marcus Randall completed a pass to Devery Henderson who broke the tackle of a Kentucky defender and ran into the end zone for the game-winning touchdown.

The game took place at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Kentucky.
