LSU head coach Brian Kelly didn’t want to extend the game against Alabama any longer.

And, he didn’t.

After quarterback Jayden Daniels ran 25 yards for a touchdown in the game’s first overtime, the Tigers decided to try a two-point conversion, making it a do-or-die play for the home team.

Freshman tight end Mason Taylor caught the throw from Daniels, who was rolling to his right. The reception was just inside the end zone with the ball narrowly across the goal line near the pylon giving LSU the 32-31 victory.

With the win, LSU is now in the driver’s seat for the SEC Western Division. It was Alabama’s second Southeastern Conference loss of the season.

That game-winning reception has been chosen as the U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish “Catch of the Week.”

Taylor, who is the son of NFL Hall of Fame defensive end Jason Taylor, caught all three passes thrown in his direction during the game. He finished with 36 receiving yards, including the conversion catch.

Daniels completed 22 of 32 passes for 182 yards and no interceptions and ran for 95 yards, including the overtime touchdown.

Remember … for the tailgate tent or the pre-game party, U. S. Farm-Raised Catfish is always “the winning catch.”

The Catfish Institute, or TCI, was formed in 1986 by catfish farmers and feed manufacturers to raise consumer awareness of the positive qualities of U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish. Since its formation, U.S. per capita consumption has more than doubled.

U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is a sustainable and environmentally friendly seafood product. The National Audubon Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Environmental Defense all recommend U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish as a safe environmental choice. To find out more, visit www.uscatfish.com.
