The #6 LSU Tigers jumped out to a quick lead over the #9 Texas Longhorns in Saturday’s contest in Austin, but the Longhorns fought back and made things interesting.  Texas clawed back within a touchdown after Devin Duvernay’s 15-yard touchdown reception to make the score 45-38 with :15 left in the game.  The Longhorns subsequently failed to recover an onside kick that would have given the offense one last chance to tie the game.  Despite the physicality of both teams, Texas managed to avoid injury for most of the game. However, in his post-game media availability, head coach Tom Herman said both of his nicklebacks suffered injuries late in the game.

Sophmore starter B.J. Foster suffered a hamstring injury on the last defensive play of the game. Herman called the injury a “tweak,” which will be evaluated on Sunday. The injury was significant enough to where Herman said Foster “would not have been able to go back in” had they played more on defense.

Foster’s backup, junior Josh Thompson, suffered a rib injury on the onside kick attempt and would be evaluated on Sunday as well.

Foster had 7 solo tackles including two sacks on LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.
