Nowhere Else Do Football Games Register on the Richter Scale
On Oct. 8, 1988, LSU trailed Auburn at home 6-0 with less than 2 minutes left when LSU quarterback Tommy Hodson found tailback
Eddie Fuller in the end zone for the winning touchdown. The score whipped the crowd of 79,431 at Tiger Stadium into a frenzy
that reverberated in Baton Rouge. A day later the stunned campus geologists discovered the moment had registered on the Richter
scale. Tiger stadium hasn't played host to any official seismic events since, but its crowds have produced enough intimidating
ones to keep opponents quaking in their cleats.
