When numbers like 146 (points), 197 (plays) and double-digit touchdown passes enter the equation, you know it was a wild game.
That was the case in the 4 hours, 53 minute, seven-overtime game between LSU and Texas A&M. Here's a look at all the craziest numbers:
• Seven overtimes matched the most in NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) history. It had previously happened four times, most recently Western Michigan's 71-68 victory over Buffalo on Oct. 7, 2017.
• The combined 146 points by the Tigers and Aggies is an FBS record for most points in a game.
• LSU's 72 points were the third-most in program history, following a 93-0 victory over UL-Lafayette in 1936 and a 77-0 victory over Rice in 1977.
