BATON ROUGE, LA – OCTOBER 13: LSU Tigers huddles up before a game against the Georgia Bulldogs at Tiger Stadium on October 13, 2018 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. (Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images)A star college football running back has the gambling world going crazy following his late-game decision tonight.LSU star running back Nick Brossette went down inside the 5-yard line on purpose – twice – in the final minute of tonight’s win over Arkansas.The Tigers, who failed to reach the end zone with Brossette’s move, ended up winning by 7 points.The spread for the game: 13.5 points.Hmm….I think what Brossette just did in the #LSU game was quite odd given the spread. I’ll just leave it there.— SportSourceAnalytics (@SportSourceA) November 11, 2018Nick Brossette is being incredibly selfless here. And it must be infuriating some folks in Vegas.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) November 11, 2018Kudos to LSU’s Nick Brossette for the smart slide to avoid scoring a TD and thus ending the game against Arkansas. Heady play in the heat of the moment. … Twice. Because O for some reason didn’t go victory formation and ran another play. Brossette smarter than the coaches.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) November 11, 2018Oh boy! You know there are a lot of gamblers furious with Brossette’s decision to go down instead in scoring–TWICE! #OHBOY— Jimmy D Smith (@JimmyDetail) November 11, 2018Nick Brossette slides twice to stay out of the end zone and surely infuriate some degenerate gambler somewhere and delight another.LSU runs out the clock and wins 24-17.— Cody Worsham (@CodyWorsham) November 11, 2018It’ll be interesting to see what Brossette says after the game.LSU improved to 8-2 with the win today, while Arkansas dropped to 2-8.
