The art of clock management
By ESPN.com staff
I know it's still a sore subject down on the Bayou, but the end of that Ole Miss game last season continues to resonate.
Could LSU have gotten its field goal team onto the field to kick the game-winner after Terrance Toliver's spectacular catch? There was only one second remaining on the game clock, but more than 25 seconds in real time went by before the officials marked the ball and re-started the clock.
Take a look at these two videos, one of that LSU-Ole Miss ending and another showing Air Force successfully racing its field goal team onto the field in the final seconds before halftime last season in the Armed Forces Bowl against Houston.
Obviously, it can be done.
