Late TD Puts Irish Over Tigers In Citrus Bowl

Miles Boykin turned a one-handed sideline catch into a 55-yard touchdown pass from Ian Book with 1:28 left and No. 14 Notre Dame pulled out a Citrus Bowl victory over No. 16 LSU.

Boykin caught three passes for 102 yards and was the MVP. Book had replaced starter Brandon Wimbush late in the first half when the game was scoreless. Book completed 14 of 19 passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns.

Notre Dame (10-3) won after being outgained and committing two turnovers, only one of which turned into LSU points. Jack Gonsoulin's 17-yard field goal had given LSU (9-4) a 17-14 lead with 2:03 left. 

Tigers' signal caller Danny Etling threw a pair of touchdown passes to running back Derrius Guice, who also piled up 98 rushing yards in defeat.
