Twenty 20 seniors played their final game in Tiger Stadium on Saturday night and several of them played major roles in LSU's 45-21 victory over Texas A&M.

Senior QB Danny Etling threw for a career-high 347 yards and tied a career-high three TD passes in his 16th victory as the Tigers starting QB. The 347 yards is the 13th most in LSU history. Etling was the final player to make it down the hill during the pregame Tiger Walk to soak every moment in.

LSU had 601 yards of total offense, second consecutive game the Tigers racked up over 600 yards of offense against the Aggies defensive led by John Chavis.

Senior wide receiver DJ Chark had five catches for 86 yards and one touchdown as 10 different players caught passes.

Seniors J.D. Moore and Russell Gage each caught TD passes.

Darrell Williams in his final game in Tiger Stadium had 106 yards and a touchdown. Williams had a career-high 77 yard run and also had a 56-yard pass reception.

Derrius Guice, who most likely played his final game in Tiger Stadium, had 127 yards rushing and one touchdown.

On defense the seniors also showed up big, Greg Gilmore had a sack and two tackles for a loss. Donnie Alexander had a fumble recovery, Corey Thompson had a sack.

Sophomore Devin White had another double-digit tackle performance. He had 13 stops and an interception.

LSU finishes the regular season 6-2 in the SEC. Best record since 2012. 9-3 overall and they'll wait until next Sunday to find out which bowl game they'll play in. It seems like it will be either the Outback or Citrus Bowl.
