It ended up being the first upset of the young college football season. Louisiana headed to Ames to take on the 23rd-ranked Iowa State Cyclones Saturday afternoon.
The Ragin’ Cajuns found themselves as 11-point road underdogs in their season opener. However, special teams came to play big time as Louisiana looked to pull off the first real upset of the season.
That included cornerback Eric Garror taking a punt back 83 years for a touchdown to give Louisiana a 24-14 lead in the fourth quarter.
We’re not sure where the punt return coverage was from Matt Campbell’s team here.
In the end, Iowa State dropped the game by the score of 31-14. It really isn’t a great look for the ranked program coming off a pedestrian 7-6 season. Remember, Campbell was bandied about as a potential NFL head coach in the recent past.
As for Garror, he’s coming off a solid sophomore campaign that saw the smallish 5-foot-9 defensive back record eight passes defended.
