Last night, the Louisiana State University Tigers pummeled the Miami Hurricanes in the Peach Bowl here in Atlanta. It was a great win for the state of Louisiana.

Carter Strickland of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution sums it up:

But as they did all season, the No. 10 Tigers didn’t just survive, they thrived. And by the time the 40-3 beatdown over No. 9 Miami in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl was over Friday night, there was a feeling maybe, just maybe LSU, a team to which a battered state had tied its heartstrings, had long waited to get some revenge on any Hurricane, no matter the shape or size.

That’s good writing.
