LSU vs. Florida State score, takeaways: Walk-off blocked extra point saves ‘Noles from Tigers’ late surge

Despite a roaring comeback taking advantage of Florida State miscues, it was LSU who made the final mistake on Sunday night in a 24-23 victory by the Seminoles at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Trailing 24-10 in the fourth quarter, the Tigers scored the final 13 points of the game, but a blocked extra point with no time remaining cost them a potential comeback opportunity in overtime.

LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels hit Jaray Jenkins for a 2-yard touchdown with 1 second remaining to score what was seemingly the game-tying score to end a 99-yard drive begun by a FSU goal-line fumble. But Damian Ramos’ extra point was blocked with no time left on the clock to give the ‘Noles the win. 

The only reason LSU had the chance to tie it late was because Brian Thomas Jr. was initially ruled out of bounds with a second left at the 1 yard line. Replay showed that he was in bounds, but LSU snapped the ball on the whistle to get the final play off in regulation.

CBS Sports will update this story with a breakdown of the game and takeaways from the LSU-FSU meeting.
