Does your team have any game-changing moments that didn't involve any team on the field?

Example: LSU vs Florida, 2007: Florida was winning the game pretty handily, staying just out of reach of LSU.

Halfway through the 3rrd, LSU managed to score a TD, to come within 3 pts of of UF. The crowd was pretty hyped, but still subdued. Tebow was still having his way with LSU.

During the TV timeout before the kickoff, the score of the USC-STanford game was announced, with Stanford beating USC, the other team ranked #1.

The Stadium erupted. The Tigers bench erupted. The Florida bench looked around in awe.

Two Gator fans sitting in front of us looked at each other and one said "We just lost this game."

Even though Florida managed to score another TD and go up 24-14 after that, the entire stadium knew it didn't matter. LSU was winning that game.



Does your team have any stories like that? Where something besides the actions of your team turned the game and made the crowd a factor that it wasn't before?

Yeah, the SEC naming Steve Shaw head of officials.

The other would be the 2008 & 2009 Auburn vs WVU games.

2008 Auburn was not ready for the cold and was in the middle of giving up. Tubs even turned off the heaters to try to light a fire in them but nothing and WVU came back.

2009 - rain game, monsoon rain delay before the game, students and fans going crazy throughout. No way Auburn was losing that game.

It changed every game of our 2012 season where we started out as a top 10 team and were expected to compete for the SEC title.

I remember back in '22 when Coach Fisher just pummeled Bama's coach on national t.v. for 15 minutes straight. Everyone thought that was a big mistake and his team would pay dearly for it months later.

Instead, it ignited the Aggies, who circled the wagons in an "us against the world" fashion and shocked the football world for the 2nd straight year.

And then turned around and lost to multiple underdogs and fell right back into your forever home…. Mediocrity

Winning it handily and being “just out of reach” are not the same thing

No one was shocked when you went 8-4 and lost to LSU. It has come to be expected at this point.

This is like your fifth national title on layaway at the Bryan Tx Walmart.

I don't think it materially changed the outcome of the game (Auburn was getting that arse whipped no matter what that day), but Siran Stacy bringing the game ball out onto the field for the 2008 Iron Bowl was pretty awesome. His daughter had been killed in a car wreck not long before and so everyone was giving him a standing O anyway, but then he started hyping up the crowd even more on his way off the field. The man was FIRED UP to beat some Auburn arse that day and he set the tone for the epic beatdown that followed. They say if you listen close you can still hear the sound of Glen Coffee's footsteps as he continues to run circles around that Tiger defense.

I don't know if it changed the game, but State was down 28-3 in Jordan Hare last season when they showed Samford was beating Mullen 42-28.

The entire stadium knew you were winning despite going 5 for 5 on 4th down during the last drive.

MU v. Colorado 10/06/1990 MU up 31-27. Just seconds to go in the game. Colorado's ball within 5 yards of the MU goal line. MU forces a turnover on downs. Officials decide to give Colorado another down anyway.

Closest thing I can think of is when we were playing SC and for whatever reason there was a long delay before we kicked off after a touchdown, the whole kickoff team started getting hype to Grove Street by Waka Flaka for what seemed like an eternity and the stadium fed off it. Not sure what the score was at that point, but that song has turned into the official football hype song

Sooners are throttling Nebraska midway in the game and there were constant updates of #6 Texas Tech and #1 Texas. Game ended in a Crabtree winning TD reception thriller. Sooners had lost to Texas earlier in the season.

Sooners, Horns, Red Raiders were top 10 competing for conference and national championship implications.
