BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - No. 12 LSU blew one final chance, then
made the most of another.

The Tigers remained unbeaten with a 16-14 victory over Tennessee
on Saturday after a Volunteers penalty for too many players on the
field gave them a second shot at victory. LSU (5-0, 3-0 SEC) was
confused on third-and-goal from the 1 and allowed the clock to run
nearly to zero before a botched snap sent Tennessee players
streaming onto the field in celebration as time ran out.

But the Volunteers (2-3, 0-2) had 13 defensive players on the
field when the ball was snapped, which allowed LSU to run one more
play from the 1. Stevan Ridley punched in a 1-yard touchdown for
the wild win.

Ridley finished with 123 yards rushing. Matt Simms and Tauren
Poole scored on short runs for Tennessee.

Jordan Jefferson had an 83-yard TD run on LSU's first offensive
play.
