GIF: LSU Runs Fake FG Attempt, Appears To Score TD, But Officials Controversially Say Runner Was Short

Les Miles turned into The Mad Hatter late in the second quarter of LSU's game against Notre Dame Tuesday afternoon. 

On 4th and goal from Notre Dame's 2-yard line, the Tigers lined up for a field goal. But instead of going through with the attempt, LSU pulled a fake. It appeared that backup quarterback Brad Kragthorpe crossed the plane with the ball, giving the Tigers a touchdown, but the referees reviewed the play and declared the runner did not get in, giving the ball back to the Fighting Irish. 

Here's the play: 

Notre Dame currently leads LSU, 21-14, at the end of the first half.
