With LSU's offense sputtering, it needed someone to step up and make a big play.

Enter punt returner Tre'Davious White.

The corner received a punt and sprinted right up the middle past the entire Syracuse coverage team, en route to a 69-yard touchdown. The score gave LSU a 17-3 advantage early in the third quarter.
