BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The last time the Southern Miss Eagles visited Tiger Stadium lives in infamy as perhaps the lowest point in the history of LSU football.

Sure, the Tigers lost at home to Florida 58-3 during the 1993 season, but there was something about LSU's 20-18 embarrassment to USM that plunged the program deeper into college football's abyss.

It was perhaps the worst home crowd in the modern day history of Death Valley, as 51,710 tickets were distributed, but far less actually attended on that Nov. 12, 1994 night.

In this video, radio veterans Charles Hanagriff and Jimmy Ott, along with "The Voice of Tiger Stadium," Dan Borne, recall their memories of that unfortunate evening and the LSU coaching tenure of one Curley Hallman.
